Hispanic Access is delighted to announce the addition of Ana Jimenez as the Conservation Networks Manager. Jimenez has over nine years of experience working in the non-profit sector and will play a crucial role in overseeing and managing various conservation-related advisory councils and networks within the organization.

“Hispanic Access connects to my passions: conservation and serving the Latino community,” said Jimenez. “I want to be part of an organization that aligns with my interests and values. That is what Hispanic Access is for me."

Jimenez received her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Political Sciences from Fort Hays State University and her Master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Kansas and worked as a trustee liaison and government relations specialist for the Nature Conservancy. She will be identifying and engaging potential new Latino Climate Council, Olas y Acción Oceans Council, and Por La Creación Faith-based Alliance advisory members and partners, and implementing strategies to expand the organization's
conservation network.

“Ana is a passionate environmental conservationist with a commitment to fostering positive change,” said Maite Arce, president and CEO of Hispanic Access. “Her ability to work collaboratively with diverse groups and stakeholders and deep understanding of environmental and conservation issues will facilitate the scaling up of the conservation program.”
