Strengthening Through Solidarity

My journey with the CMA has been a path of continuous growth and connection. The solidarity with Catholic media professionals across the nation has not only bolstered my skills but also imbued me with a deeper sense of purpose. It's empowering to know there's always someone to turn to for insights and advice.

Embracing Diversity, Fostering Growth

As the lone Latino in my Communications team, the CMA has been a beacon of encouragement. Connecting with fellow Latino colleagues has reminded me of the growing significance of Spanish communications in the Catholic Church in the U.S. The CMA is a testament to the power of diversity and mutual support.

Nurturing the Next Generation

The CMA's influence extends to the budding journalists at Trinity Washington University. Our goal is to integrate these young, talented individuals, predominantly women of color, into the Catholic media landscape, fostering diversity and fresh perspectives. The CMA's role in our strategic growth is invaluable, guiding us towards creating a dynamic Catholic news service.

A Journey of Learning and Friendship

Beginning as a diocesan newspaper reporter, my 30-year journey with the CMA has been enlightening. The educational resources and networking have not only honed my skills but have also led to lasting friendships. The camaraderie and support within the CMA have been pivotal in facing challenges and celebrating successes.
