With hope in her heart, fire in her blood and fierce determination for the advancement of her fellow BIPOC, Karlha is a child of Mexican immigrant farm workers from Hughson, one of California’s most conservative counties. She’s been able to occupy spaces not meant for her voice and passion and while others have tried to extinguish her flame, it’s allowed Karlha to realize her purpose in life is to show up authentically and with the integrity of her ancestors. Karlha’s professional success begins with being the first in her family to attend and graduate from college, #StanStateAlumni. She boasts an impressive 25+ year career in public relations, fundraising and community engagement in the sectors of non-profit, higher education, government, and private business. Her ability to be successful in all sectors, speaks volumes to her creativity, leadership, and ability to succeed in whatever field she’s chosen to stand behind. She has been awarded a Hometown Hero, Outstanding Woman of Stanislaus County and a Latina Heroé for her commitment to advocating for others in her community inspiring her to start Korazón Konsultants, a collective of BIPOC and accomplices who have created our own table of power with the goal of supporting one another’s passions and strengths while influencing systems of inequities in our communities.
