I am a Grants Manager on the Foundation’s Operations team, responsible for working with the entire team to ensure our systems, processes, and overall operations continue to support all facets of our work, especially as the Foundation continues to grow and evolve.
I joined the Internet Society Foundation in April 2022 as an Operations Specialist and prior to that, I was with the Internet Society as a Planning and Reporting Coordinator before making the transition to the Foundation.
Prior to joining the Internet Society and the Foundation, I worked for five years at a community-based non-profit organization that serves South Carolina’s Hispanic communities. While working there, I led data analysis, reporting, and measurement of impact outcomes. I also have experience that ranges from training fellow colleagues on a new process or tool, to serving as administrator of web-based data systems, to supporting advocacy and partnership efforts.
I am an avid traveller and finder of cheap flights. I am always ready to talk about where you’ve been and where you’re going next! I enjoy trying new restaurants, playing tennis, and tending to my mini farm!
I am fluent in English and Spanish and am based in Columbia, South Carolina, United States.
