Sylvia invites all women who care to have an opportunity to give back to their Latino community and to be a part of a very unique and exciting organization to come join her on a wonderful journey of “Comadrizmo” with Mujer, Inc.!
Treasurer – Andrea M. Frausto
Andrea became a general member of Mujer, Inc. in 2001 while working at the Arizona Attorney General’s Office. She was elected to serve as a Director-at-Large shortly thereafter, and immediately filled the position of Membership Committee Chair which she held for numerous years. Andrea became Treasurer in 2005 and continued as Treasurer in 2006 and 2007. She was President-Elect in 2008, President in 2009 and Past President for 2010 through 2014.
The ‘real’ experience of Mujer, Inc. of course, was the Project Mana Leadership Retreat. It was at this flagship event where all the hard work and dedication came to fruition – the empowerment of our young Latinas through the precepts of “Modeling, Mirroring and Mentoring”. In keeping with that mission, Andrea has served as co-facilitator in 2002 and 2003; and as main facilitator from 2004 through 2012. As Mujer, Inc. moves forward, the Project Mana programs will shift slightly.
“The experiences with these young Latinas, the Mujer comadres, and the personal growth have been a treasure. Absolutely worthwhile!”
Andrea is an Interactive Media Producer for Pearson and has a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration.
