“I am honored to serve as your president for the 2022-2023 term. I hope you will join me in the work ahead as we create more opportunities to strengthen our professional and student networks,” said Quiñones in a statement.
As she reflects on the whirlwind of the past two years, Quiñones highlights two important lessons that resonate with her.
“The first is that time is precious, and the second is the importance of being intentional about how I spend my remaining time,” she said.
As a result, in her new role, she is committed to investing her time in areas that will benefit her family, as well as her community in the long-term.
In addition to her role with ALPFA Philadelphia, Quiñones has been a Temple University staff member since 2007 and adjunct faculty member since 2011. She currently serves as associate director for the Center for Undergraduate Advising at the Fox School of Business, where she controls academic records, assesses transcripts, and interprets academic policies. Prior to taking on this role in 2010, she served three years as the center’s academic advisor.
Quiñones also serves as the staff advisor for the Temple chapter of ALPFA.
Previous roles throughout her professional career include program coordinator at Esperanza College of Eastern University, assistant director for The Legacy Program, and graduate enrollment advisor at Eastern University.
Quiñones is a graduate of West Chester University of Pennsylvania, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in political science before obtaining her master’s degree in nonprofit management from Eastern University.
ALPFA Philadelphia, which currently includes over 1,900 members, is one of 44 professional chapters across the country. There are also 157 student chapters across the nation, seven of which in Philadelphia.
Founded in 1972, ALPFA was the first national Latino professional association in the United States, with a mission to develop, connect and inspire the next generation of Latino leaders within all sectors of the global economy.
“I am confident that we can continue to empower and develop Latinx leaders of the future who will impact every sector of the global economy,” said Quiñones.
