About Viviana

Hometown: Chicago, IL

Education: BA, Political Science, Dominican University

Hobbies: If I’m not playing video games, you can find me riding my bike! My personal goal is to experience as many bike trails as Illinois has to offer. I try to bring my family and friends with me when I go riding because sometimes the company is the best part of the journey.

Who are you?

I am the Communications Manager at HSC. As a member of the communications team, my goal is to support the organization through project management and content creation. I am responsible for HSC’s website updates, email campaigns, blog posts, digital reports, event materials and social media.

What makes your job great?

I believe the best part of any job is working with passionate people. I am lucky to be surrounded by so many caring individuals who are passionate about supporting and uplifting marginalized communities.

When did you come to Healthy Schools Campaign?

I started my journey with HSC in August 2021. Before coming to HSC, I worked in communications for Chicago-based nonprofits.

Why did you join Healthy Schools Campaign?

The reason I joined HSC was because I resonated with the organization’s mission and commitment towards social justice. 

Where does your motivation come from?

I believe we all have the ability to make a difference in the lives of others. Being able to use my gifts to further HSC’s mission to support families and communities is something that I am very grateful for.
