Camila Navarrette

Associate Communications Officer

In Camila’s career to date, she has gained a depth of experience, from dynamic digital strategy with Conservation Colorado to policy research and economic justice communications (more recently) with Colorado Fiscal Institute. Throughout her career, a common theme holds true: Camila has an unrelenting passion for social justice and a fire for dismantling the inequities that persist across institutions.

Camila joined the Communication team in March 2020 after nearly four years working for various nonprofits with education and advocacy missions. She highlights her internship with Denver Art Museum as a catalyst for her journey towards a mission-driven career path. This experience illuminated how communities can forge meaningful connections to institutions through arts and culture – and how this relationship can foster opportunities.

At the Foundation, Camila is charged with leading digital communication efforts, while connecting a range of online audiences to our mission. She also embraces the creative process through multimedia content creation and contributes to the team’s marketing and communications efforts. Camila is committed to the Foundation’s mission because she understands how historic, racist structures persists across modern institutions. She feels that working in health equity communications requires a level of determination to ensure resources meet folks who are most impacted.

A Coloradan for nearly seven years, Camila has a personal passion for hiking, yoga and supporting local organizations through a Denver Parks & Recreation gym membership. Her sweet pup, Max, often joins in on the yoga routine. Guilty pleasures for Camila include “slightly supernatural” and nerdy TV dramas, with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and 30 Rock coming to mind as favorites. A big fan of warm weather, life is best for Camila when she’s reading a book and spending time with the ones she loves (including Max, of course!) in Colorado's beautiful outdoors.

"The historic forces of health inequity have lasting implications for our neighbors who are most impacted by racism and other systems. It makes me determined every day to do my part to ensure our neighbors most impacted by unfairness have the resources they need to be healthy."
