Our staff is passionate and dedicated to helping carryout BNCW's mission as well as serving the members of this great Association!
Jazmin Sanchez is local to Cashmere, a relatively small but charming town near Wenatchee. She was born in the state of Washington, but her family is from Mexico. She is proud to call herself a Mexican American and very much embraces both cultures equally. After graduating from Cascade High School in Leavenworth, she decided to branch out and move out of state. She had the opportunity to internship at iHeart Media in Dallas, TX as the promotions and events assistant. She attended the Chaplin School of & Tourism in Miami, FL, before completing her BA in Communication studies & mass media at Bellevue University. For the past 3 years she has focused on building her career as a Spanish bilingual social media and marketing specialist. She was previously the social media manager for Latino Community Fund, a non-profit based in Seattle and spent the last year living and working in different cities of Mexico. This gave her the experience to work with marketing professionals abroad. We are happy to announce that she now forms part of BNCW as the marketing coordinator and office manager. She is excited to get more involved in our community and help our members and staff team. When Jazmin is not working, she loves to enjoy her time outside in nature, or anywhere near water. Her favorite activities and hobbies include swimming, going for walks, and eating watermelon.
Danielle is a Wenatchee transplant since 2016. Her family moved to Wenatchee and they all fell in love with the small-town charm. Danielle learned the importance of working hard and supporting other small businesses. When she is not working on helping local businesses in the Wenatchee area, you can find Danielle with her nose in a good book, breaking up fights between her three kids, watching True Crime documentaries, or on the softball diamond. Please feel free to call or set up an appointment with her at any time!
