Xiomara Alzate

Program Associate, Health

Xiomara liaises with Hispanic Access Foundation’s health partners in the field, takes part in site visits, and works assiduously to keep the organization’s health programming running smoothly.

Xiomara is a first-generation college graduate with her bachelor’s in accountancy from the University of Houston. She served on leadership teams throughout university and, before coming to Hispanic Access, worked as an outreach coordinator in public health serving the greater Houston community. Xiomara has also interned with two nonprofit organizations—one focused on serving first-generation students—and wishes to continue supporting the Latino community in her current and future roles.

Why she works for Hispanic Access…

“I decided to work for Hispanic Access because I've always been passionate about serving the community and wanted my work to make a difference. Hispanic Access’ mission is one that I fully resonate with and believe in. At Hispanic Access, we focus on connecting Latinos to opportunity through various resources and community networks; that is something I find powerful as someone who comes from an immigrant Latino household and knows how difficult it is to navigate coming to this country and not knowing where to turn to for help.”

In her spare time…

Xiomara enjoys reading, playing tennis, working out, traveling, cooking or baking plant-based recipes, and attending live music events.

Her favorite book…

“I'm not sure I have a favorite book, but I have read To Kill a Mockingbird a few times and always thoroughly enjoy it. The character dynamics really stand out to me, and the themes tackled within the plot are hugely impactful.”

A person she finds inspirational…

“I would consider Jesus to be an inspiration—not only because his persona is directly tied to my faith, but also because of the lessons on servant leadership. He taught that leaders should use the power entrusted to them to serve others, and, out of love, serve them before their own needs. He looked past people's faults and instead focused on the love and kindness displayed, which I find to be extremely inspirational.”
