Hello from the Rio Grande Valley!
Hi all, my name is René Ballesteros and started as Development Manager with Latinos in Heritage Conservation in late June! We are growing national nonprofit and I currently work remote in South Texas.
I worked as a graduate fellow with LHC in the spring, and I loved their mission and vision. I am excited to be helping with heritage conservation work, leadership development and making an overall impact through relationship stewardship and fundraising.
I recently served a quick stint as a Grant Proposal Writer at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley and before that I was served for 13 years at the Museum of South Texas History in Edinburg, Texas. There, I worked in Community Engagement, Education, Programs and Events, Collections Management and Visitors Services. I am currently pursuing an MAIS in Anthropology at UTRGV.
Thank you for this wonderful community. I look forward to learning and contributing.
René A. Ballesteros
