About Adriana:

Tell us about your family (fur babies count!): "Here is Diego, my 10 year old FID (feathered kid). Diego is a super-smart chatty little bird. His favorite phrase is 'I love Diego.' There's also Misha, a stray kitty I adopted a year and a half ago. Misha's favorite hobbies are eating, sleeping, and basking in the glow of his beauty."

Where do you live? "Los Angeles, California."

What do you like to do for fun? "Reading, gardening, fine art, photography, taking care of the menagerie. My Mr. Lincoln Rose is a classic garden favorite."

What’s a life achievement you are particularly proud of? "Finishing my college degree."

What’s one memory that always makes you smile? "Laughing uncontrollably in a Laemmle's movie theatre with my friend after we heard a hilariously botched pronunciation of a French actor's name by a narrator on a preview trailer - we glanced sideways at each other and it was over - it was that clenched stomach, gasping for breath, hot tears flowing kind of laughter - total spectacle!  [laugh] [blush]  Totally embarrassing, but a funny memory.  [smiley]"

Tell us about your organization: "White Memorial Medical Center Charitable Foundation is a 501 c3 which raises money to support the programs at our hospital. Recently, White Memorial launched the Center for Hispanic Health and the Limb Preservation Center to help address the specific health and wellness needs that affect our communty the most."

What’s a typical day like for you? "Generating various financial and demographic reports for the staff, prospect management, gift entry and acknowledgments."

What’s the best part of your job? "Using data analysis to produce reports that help my colleagues articulate results and show off their accomplishments."
What advice would you give someone starting out in the non-profit field? "It is great to have a mentor and to learn as much as you can about all aspects of fundraising."

What do you love about the Blackbaud Community? "I love that I have access to other people's real world experiences with Blackbaud products and I can always find some really great solutions to problems or excellent recommendations on best ways to get what I need from the database."

Finally.. if you were a sandwich, which kind of sandwich would you be? "Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella on Sourdough."
