Staff Spotlight: Isabel Serrano, Account Executive
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.
