Clarissa Cadena

Clarissa Cadena was born and raised in San Antonio, TX, and moved to Colorado in 2013 with her family. As a single mother of three young girls, Ms. Cadena managed to complete her undergraduate degree while working full time and taking a minor break to join the Army Reserves as an MP. 

Ms. Cadena’s academic background consists of a Bachelors of Science in Business Management and she is currently a candidate of the MS International Business program at CU Denver.

Her hope is to find an ethical and reputable organization to grow with and possibly continue her educational career to obtain a PhD.
