JA Career Speaker Series-Arlene Armijo
New Nuevo Experiences Reimagined
When: Wednesday, December 14, 2022
As a homegrown New Mexican, Arlene was led to her adventures in Albuquerque, NM during her college career at the University of New Mexico.
After graduation, Arlene found her passion within the healthcare sector, inspiring her to become a female entrepreneur and starting her own
business. Just basically your all-around motivator and community leader.
After starting her own business, a new journey approached Arlene. She found love and peace within the philanthropic and nonprofit sector when she started working at the Special Olympics.
During her time in the nonprofit sector, Arlene strengthened her definition of community – creating her own story on how she would always support the dreams of others.
Not only is it Arlene’s goal to create experiences for all, but also to provide a dynamic platform for people, local businesses and travelers to tell their New Mexico story.
She is the definition of redefining.
She is New Nuevo.
When Arlene isn’t creating your next best experience, you can find her running in the foothills of the Sandias with her husband Jesse or hanging at home with their fur baby, Winston.
