Virginia Campo has three years of professional experience in the nonprofit sector. She holds a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in International Relations and Latin American Studies from Florida State University and has complemented her education with leadership development and social entrepreneurship programs with the Leadership Exchange Institute. She has worked in two United Nations agencies and in the field with an American sustainable development company, Kalu Yala, in addition to experience in the banking sector with HSBC. Virginia has gained valuable project management and report writing skills while working in the United Nations, and has broadened this knowledge with first-hand field experiences as a Community Outreach Director in a rural town outside of Panama City. Living in the rural areas awoke her passion for women’s empowerment, which led her to start Hecha y Derecha, an NGO devoted to bridging the gap between women in rural and urban areas through leadership and entrepreneurship education. Virginia has honed her quantitative, analytical and financial management skills as a Management Trainee Officer with HSBC Bank. She wishes to apply these skills to advance the work of nonprofit organizations.
