Cynthia has spearheaded the Marketing and Communications department at HHF the last year, and has extensive background in various fields. Through her vision and leadership, HHF’s social media presence has grown and hit many milestones the last year, including being awarded the 2017 Non-Profit Campaign of the Year Award for our 29th Anniversary Hispanic Heritage Awards campaign, a campaign she oversaw.
