Chamber Member Since 2017
Milena O. Lanz Maternal and Child Health Consortium
What do you enjoy most about your job or business industry?

I love to help families and make a difference in the lives of children. I also enjoy working with my staff members. In addition, I love MCHC, I joined the Organization in 2004 and as of today, I feel passion for our mission.

In what ways has your chamber membership benefited you and/or your business?

I enjoy attending events hosted by the chamber and I have developed great connections. I participate in the Executive Director's confidential peer group and it has been tremendous support for me, particularly during the pandemic years.

How do you define success?

Be disciplined, develop good habits, listen to others, care about others, be grateful for everything you have, and be positive.

What business challenges do you face and how do you overcome them?

The fundraising dynamic and delivery of service have changed during the last two years. I have been focusing on learning and adapting to these new changes to ensure the sustainability of MCHC's programs. I have invested in strengthening the organization by increasing training opportunities and technology to support the work of both, our front-line staff and leadership team.

What makes your business stand out from other businesses offering similar services or products?

94% of MCHC staff are bilingual and bicultural. The home visiting services provide a unique service allowing families to feel supported as well as confident with the trust they have with MCHC's Community Health Workers and Parent Educators.

What advice would you give a young professional starting out in their career?

Choose a career that you are passionate about and try to diversify your education in order to enrich your knowledge and be more successful in life.

What’s something about you that most people may not know (favorite band, favorite food, childhood memory, etc.)?

I come from a diverse family from Costa Rica (Mom's side), grandparents from Italy, Spain, and Peru (Father's side), and I was raised in five different countries.
