Melissa Gutiérrez
Executive Director

Raised in Georgia with Colombian pride

Emory University

Passion: I want to be a positive role model for young people, particularly in my Latino community. I want to show our youth that there are people that care about them, that want to see them succeed and ultimately believe in them. My hobbies include healthy living, fitness, traveling and watching telenovelas (can’t omit this guilty pleasure!).

Interesting fact:  I’m a vegetarian for 18 years and counting!

If I could be an animal, which would I be? I would be a bird soaring through the skies sightseeing all of the wonderous places in the world.
