Cristina is originally from Brazil and has recently relocated back to Chicago. She is a multilingual marketing expert with international experience in communications, advertising and event planning. She holds a Master's degree from the Boston University College of Communication.
Cristina first heard of HACE through a friend and started volunteering for them in 2002. She was brought on board to manage their marketing and events; then advanced to handle their corporate accounts, and after that moved down to Florida to open up their operations in the Southeast Region.
From her experience at HACE, she states, "Being at HACE taught me so much about the importance of networking, building solid relationships, implementing strategy and also verified how you just have to be flexible and help wherever it's needed. A great sense of accomplishment came with every Latino job seeker that found a position through HACE, and being a part of that was very fulfilling."
