Carmelita Abrajan-Rodriguez (Carmen)
is a longtime resident of Escondido, California. She is the daughter of Mexican Immigrants who left their native land in
pursuit of better opportunities. Although they were living in a new country, her parents understood the importance of instilling in their children appreciation of
their culture. For this reason, in her childhood she enjoyed dancing Ballet Folklorico, a traditional Mexican folk dance. After attending Vocational School,
she became a Medical Assistant and has since worked within the nonprofit sector.
She has over thirteen years’ professional experience and currently holds the role of
Administrative Assistant, assisting staff at the executive level. Her experience includes strong communication skills, strong organizational skills, and attention to detail. She recently co-founded a small catering company. She is excited to join the USA Multicultural Board and use her expertise to bring forth positive change in our community. On her free time, she enjoys traveling, learning new recipes, and
spending time with her husband Erick and three-year old daughter Alexa.
