I value being part of a team focused on empowering underserved communities and Elevar is a leader in the field
Rogelio joined Elevar in 2015 as the Executive Assistant and to assist with Investor Relations. “After spending several years in the non-profit field, it became clear to me how much I value being part of a team that focuses on empowering underserved communities, and Elevar is a leader in this field.” Rogelio was born and raised in San Cristobal, Venezuela and moved to the United States in 2002.
Rogelio has previously been an Executive Assistant to non-profit and for-profit executives, with varying experience from the social services sector to tourism at organizations like Solid Ground and the Seattle Hospitality Group. During his stint at Solid Ground, Rogelio was as a member of a housing program that focused on providing rental assistance to clients experiencing an emergency situation. It was there where he learned that underserved communities do not have the systems in place to help them succeed. He is excited to be part of the Elevar team.
Rogelio studied computer engineering at the Universidad Nacional Experimental del Tachira in Venezuela. He lives in Seattle with his wife and cat, and is a huge fan of the Seattle Seahawks.
