Executive Board Members
Sylvia began her experience with Mujer, Inc. in 2004 when she attended her first Una Noche Romantica Dance. She then joined as a general member the following year and participated in the Project Mana experience serving as a co-facilitator in 2005 and main facilitator in 2006 and 2007. In 2008 she began serving as the Project Mana Leadership Retreat Coordinator/Manager and describes her work in this capacity as truly inspiring and personally fulfilling. Sylvia has served as Chair of Project Mana and the Resource Development Committees as well as Mujer, Inc. Treasurer, Vice President and President for 2010, 2011 and states that she is most honored to continue to serve as President for 2012. Sylvia states that she finds the mission and core values of Mujer, Inc. not only completely align with her personal values of mirroring, modeling and mentoring for her family, relatives and friends, but the ability to connect with current as well as future role models of outstanding Latina women, serves as an incredible, hopeful and utterly delightful experience for her! She invites all women who care to be part of the Mujer, Inc. “Comadrizmo” to please join her on this wonderful journey with Mujer! Sylvia is a Human Resources Administrator for the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS)
Andrea became a general member of Mujer, Inc. in 2001 while working at the Arizona Attorney General’s Office. She was elected to serve as a Director-at-Large shortly thereafter and immediately filled the position of Membership Committee Chair which she has held for numerous years and still manages today. Andrea became Treasurer in 2005 and continued as Treasurer in 2006 and 2007. She was President-Elect in 2008, President in 2009 and Past President for 2010 through 2012. The ‘real’ experience of Mujer, Inc. of course, is the Project Mana Leadership Retreat. It is at this annual flagship event where all the hard work and dedication comes to fantastic fruition –the empowerment of our young Latinas through the precepts of “Modeling, Mirroring and Mentoring”. In keeping with that mission, I have served as co-facilitator in 2002 and 2003; and as main facilitator from 2004 through 2010. The experiences with these young Latinas, the Mujer comadres and the personal growth have been beyond compare. Absolutely worthwhile! Andrea is a Multi-Media Producer for Pearson.
