Amalia Renteria (she/her/hers)

Raised in Southern California, lived in Phoenix, Arizona, and now San Francisco Bay Area based. I have a passion for social change and examining the way people, organizations, and digital PR/marketing interact with each other.

I graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Public Relations where I developed a passion for utilizing PR tactics in the non-profit sector. Although challenging, I’ve been successful at supporting and expanding various organizations PR/marketing goals on little to no budget and limited resources.

I am currently the PR and Social Media Assistant at San Jose Museum of Art in San Jose, California. I assist the Director of Marketing and Communications with all of the Museum’s PR initiatives and manage its Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat accounts.

Currently learning how to write entries for Wikipedia to improve content on Latinx artists and cultural centers.
