Claudia joined SOAR! in 2018 with more than seven years of experience in fundraising. She has worked in major gift development at organizations such as Goodwill of Orange County and Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles and has completed the coursework for the Certified Specialist in Planned Giving Program offered through California State University. She has a bachelor’s in English from Mount Saint Mary’s University and a master’s degree in international studies from Claremont Graduate University. Her studies focused on the Latin American region.
Claudia enjoys working individually with donors to uncover their passions and helping them decide how their charitable giving can make a lasting impact for an important cause. Claudia is passionate about SOAR! and its mission because women religious have made a positive impact in her life. She knows the impact religious communities make in the world and believes they deserve to retire with dignity and surrounded by the love of those they have served. In her personal time, Claudia enjoys traveling the world with her family and taking road trips throughout California, which often include her dog.
