We’re back with the next installment of our staff spotlight series! The next interview is with Isabel Serrano, an account executive in our New York City office.
Christian Hendricks: What are some exciting projects you’ve worked on at Fenton?
Isabel Serrano: At Fenton, I’ve had the chance to work on so many important and exciting projects. I especially enjoyed my work with Democracy For All 2021 on the push for D.C. Statehood. Working on this issue opened my eyes to the many ways voters are disenfranchised, and I was proud to work with our team to provide comms support around this issue.
CH: How would you describe Fenton’s culture?
IS: I definitely value the culture of feedback that exists here at Fenton. I’ve grown a lot as a comms professional because of the advice and help I’ve received from my colleagues. People are always happy to help!
CH: What advice would you give to someone who wants to work at Fenton?
IS: Be open to learning new things. Our work can move really fast, so being open to reading up on an issue really quickly or learning a new skill are important!
CH: What are you most proud of professionally?
IS: I am so proud that the work I do every day helps create change and, even in a small way, touches the lives of so many people.
CH: What are social causes you are passionate about?
IS: I am most passionate about voting rights, reproductive justice, economic justice and environmental justice.
CH: What do you like doing outside of work?
IS: I enjoy riding my bike in Central Park and visiting museums! My favorite museums in New York are the Met and the Whitney.
CH: What is your greatest achievement outside of work?
IS: My greatest achievement outside of work is being a good older sister. Watching my younger sister grow up and helping her out along the way is something I’m very proud to do.
CH: What advice would you tell your younger self?
IS: Believe in yourself and your ability to get things done. We are our own best
advocates so it’s important to know your strengths.
Thank you, Isabel!
