Work Experience

American Red Cross In New Mexico

Executive Assistant

For the last two years I have been employed as the Executive Assistant for the American Red Cross in New Mexico, and while this is not traditionally a creative role, I was able to nurture our social media presence that now has over 1,000 "likes" and many posts that are "shared" throughout the community. During our move from 142 Monroe St. to 7445 Pan American, I was part of a committee that planned and executed all of the communications to donors, volunteers and the public, which included designing flyers, posters and an email blast. This position has sharpened my skills in customer service, leadership, maintaining confidentiality and communication. I have worked directly with board members, CEOs in the Albuquerque community, donors and volunteers.
