María is a Senior Associate at New Heights Communications where she specializes in building reporter relationships in order to advance the progressive movement and unique client priorities. As a Mexican immigrant living in a border town and one of the largest Hispanic communities in the nation, María is passionate about creating opportunities to engage communities that are often underrepresented and left out of politics.
Before joining New Heights, María was a Communications Consultant at Fireside Campaigns where she proudly worked with clients such as Run for Something in order to galvanize the youth electorate and encourage young progressive leaders to run for office, and organizations such as the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice, United We Dream, Equis, and Immigration Hub, that specialize in defending Latino and immigrant communities from conservative agendas.
Fun Fact: María has a photographic memory for anything related to film, but can’t remember what she ate for dinner yesterday.
