US Catholic Sisters Against Human Trafficking is thrilled to welcome our newest staff member: Rebecca Guzman, who will serve in a part-time position as Development Coordinator. Rebecca will work with our Executive Director, Jennifer Reyes Lay, to ensure the financial health and sustainability of the organization by overseeing grant writing and reporting, fundraising, and membership/sponsorship renewal and engagement.
Rebecca comes to USCSAHT with a strong background in economics, graduating from Saint Louis University with both a B.A. in Economics and Political Science and an M.A. in Political Science. Previously she worked as Director of Advancement for St. Frances Cabrini Academy where she managed all of their donor and grant information as well as recruited new donors and assisted with their annual fundraiser. She also speaks three languages: English, Spanish, and Italian which will help greatly as we continue to strengthen relationships and collaborate with our sister networks of Talitha Kum throughout the Americas.
Rebecca is familiar with the reality of human trafficking and passionate about working to end it and ensure support for survivors. She spent two years working with a local shelter for underage trafficking victims in St. Louis, MO called Covenant House. While there Rebecca worked as an executive assistant and volunteer coordinator, organizing and supervising a diverse group of people and managing both the donor database and volunteer database, ensuring both the financial and material needs of the organization and its residents were met.
Rebecca is driven by her faith to share her gifts and talents with organizations working to make a positive difference in the world, and we are so happy she will be sharing her talents with us to realize a world without slavery. Please join us in welcoming Rebecca to the USCSAHT team! If you would like to contact her, she can be reached at Rebecca@SistersAgainstTrafficking.org.Tags: Development Coordinator
