Meet the Staff: Carlos

1.     Tell us about yourself.

I was born and raised in our strong city of the 915. Most recently, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and concluded my time as United Way’s Marketing intern and was hired as its newest marketing associate. I have a passion for photography, traveling and new experiences! 

2.     Give us a description of what you do for United Way.  

In my current role, I work directly with the VP of Marketing & Communications to develop and carry out our marketing strategy for United Way. We are community ambassadors, and our duty is to promote our organization’s mission, vision and core values to all stakeholders involved.

3.     Why is this work so important to our community?

Our entire marketing & communications team plays a vital role in ensuring that members of our community are aware of the resources available to them. Our work behind the scenes with other United Way team is also important when providing communication strategies for recruitment and client management.    

4.     What is the most surprising thing you have learned about the community and yourself in your time at United Way? 

I am completely mesmerized at our United Way’s ability to stand up for our community when challenges arise – even when the pressing issues are ever-evolving. 

5.     Share a quote that motivates you as a person and as a member of the United Way team.
