Position: Development and Communications Manager to the CEO

Felicia serves as the Development and Communications Manager to the CEO where she leads communications and thought leadership initiatives to elevate BUILD’s presence as a leader in the fields of equity, youth entrepreneurship, and education.

She comes to BUILD from the intersection of the youth travel and equity space where she spent the last five years building and scaling the development portfolio at Global Glimpse. She brings to BUILD a breadth of experiences managing funders, stakeholders, and corporate partners, along with an added background in public relations, strategic communications, and design. As the first in her family to attend and graduate from college, Felicia is excited to be part of the BUILD team and support the next generation of entrepreneurs to develop a strong sense of agency, personal responsibility, and social capital as she had to learn to navigate on her own at a young age. Felicia holds a M.S. in Public Relations and Corporate Communication from New York University, a B.A. in Political and Communication from the University of California (UC) Davis, and a certificate in Social Impact Leadership from UC Berkeley Haas.
