Professional Experience:
From my law degree to extensive experience in communications, marketing and PR, the last 14 years I have focused my efforts in the cancer control field. As director of Fundación Aladina (a Spanish non profit dedicated to working with children with cancer), the foundation has grown from a team of 2 persons to one of 23 and we are now operating in 17 hospitals in all of Spain. I have been responsible for building the organizational structure, obtaining diversified and solid income and creating a brand that fully embodies our values and goals and is a household name in Spain. We are creative, resourceful and passionate about our mission and that has allowed us to grow enormously in terms of variety of projects, geographic diversity, income and ultimately number of children and families impacted.
