Volunteering and Community Engagement

Salvadoran Enterprises for Women (SEW) October 2013 – October 2014
I helped purchase and set up the organization’s first CRM, I update and maintain their website, translate as needed, and take the lead on online communications. Most recently, I have helped set up Run for SEW – a new fundraising strategy. In October 2014, I joined SEW’s board of directors.
