Before coming to NCLD, Adolfo worked in assisting and advocating for Hispanic/Latino families at Make-A-Wish, Mid-Atlantic. Born in Santiago, Chile, Adolfo learned first-hand the difficulties of adjusting to an environment not necessarily built for him and the importance of a support system to help him navigate those murky waters.
Adolfo is responsible for supporting donor cultivation and stewardship through event management and outreach. He will assist in facilitating the planning of key cultivation events and cross-departmental activities. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Maryland School of Public Health where he focused on improving the quality of life for children with physical and cognitive disabilities. His volunteer work and previously held positions have fueled his passion for helping those with unique abilities and Adolfo has made it his personal mission to ensure equity for all.
During his free time, you can find Adolfo wading through rivers casting his fly rod for trout or out hiking and camping with his significant other Amanda and their dogs Beaux and Stanley.
