Paola is the Communications Associate for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Latin America and the Caribbean Environmental Services Support Contract (LAC ESSC). She brings nearly seven years of experience in communications to Environmental Incentives, focusing on digital communications.
Paola comes to Environmental Incentives from Trinity Washington University, where she served as Public Relations Assistant. During her time there, she empowered women of color in higher education by delivering engaging and inspiring social media content in English and Spanish, and by managing audiovisual production, graphic design, website management, and more. Paola also has experience in marketing research and strategy, proposal development, media engagement, writing, interviewing, and event production.
Paola aspires to combine her passion for nature and skills in communications to fight side by side with those who dream of protecting and defending the environment. It is vital to her to find a way to use her work to ensure that populations, especially coastal communities, can live sustainably and in harmony with wildlife. She hopes to learn more ways to address environmental problems and to give a hand to the people that depend on nature to survive.
