We are excited to welcome Dominica Gonzales, Agency Relations Representative, and Jackie Martinez, USDA Representative to our food bank team!
Originally, from Philadelphia, Dominica has been in Colorado for the last 2 years and previously worked at a non-profit, campaigning for votes on important legislation. She attended Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts where she majored in economics and Latin American Studies. Dominica comes from a family that has always been heavily involved in the non-profit sector and is passionate about improving the quality of life in our communities. She loves to travel to Puerto Rico and spend time in the mountains and doing outdoor activities.
Jackie is a Colorado native and brings experience in the property management and airlines industries to her new role. She wanted to have a positive impact and make a difference, which led her to her new position here at the food bank. Another bonus was the appeal of seeing her brother Adam, who is a great driver for FBR. Jackie spends much of her free time with her family, including staying busy wrangling her 6 and 1-year-old sons.
When asked about their favorite aspect of working at the food bank so far, Jackie and Dominica both offered similar answers without hesitation. They have enjoyed meeting all the wonderful people here and have felt very welcome. We’re delighted to have these new additions to our team.
