“Hello Members of the HTA, my name is Karla Sanchez.
I’m the new Director of Programs and Communications here at the HTA.”
I’ll be taking over as your new point of contact for all HTA Programs and Social Media efforts moving forward. So, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m happy to help!
I am looking forward to collaborating with all of you.
I studied abroad in Mexico at the ‘Universidad Autonóma de Chihuahua’ and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Spanish Literature. A year after, I moved back to the United States and got certified to work as a Spanish Interpreter in the Los Angeles Immigration Court. I also taught English and Spanish as a second language in a classroom and home setting, as well as provided tutoring to students of all ages. My most recent role was as a Social Media Coordinator at Southern Counties Express, putting me in direct contact with the Trucking Industry. There, I was the Editor and Designer of the newsletter “The Haul,” a publication created to keep Independent Contractors informed of what was going on in the industry. It was available in Spanish and English. As an added value, I also wrote and designed the employee newsletter for Southern Counties and their sister company: Container Connection as well as managed all social media accounts and company events.
