Migdalia Rodriguez, who has more than 30 years of experience in workforce development, community outreach, economic development and entrepreneurship, has joined FoMH as a special administrator.

“What excites me most about working with FoMH is the opportunity for community-building and creating partnerships with enrichment programs for both youth and adults,” Migdalia said.

Bilingual in English and Spanish, Migdalia has previously developed computer training for Hispanic seniors, coordinated summer senior programs and health fair events, and has recruited and interviewed for various training industries. Now she is looking forward to using her skills to improve the lives of Marcy Houses’ middle schoolers and families.

Migdalia firmly believes in the power of positive transformation. She is certified in adult mental health first aid and is also a Reiki Master practitioner/teacher, a Chair Yoga teacher, and a devout Transcendental Meditator, among other disciplines.

Outside of the office, Migdalia is a certified cat rescuer. She has built two shelters on her porch for cats to take refuge in during the winter.

“I have three cats of my own, I’ve had about 23 adopted and I currently take care of a colony of eight,” she said. “They have different personalities, and they love to talk and play with me.”

Migdalia is a recipient of many awards, including the David Joyce Award presented by Community Impact at Columbia University; a City Council Citation from City Council member Fernando Cabrera for servicing the communities; the Center for Employment Opportunities Award of Appreciation awarded by former Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz; and an award from the Brooklyn Women’s Coalition for outstanding contribution to the community. She is proud to have curated three Harlem artists.
