Carina Pena

Carina Pena started with Connections as a bilingual mentor, volunteering for one year with a young Latina in New York City. She was so committed to the cause that when Connections had an open position, Carina transitioned from her career at a Wall Street recruitment firm to the nonprofit world of child welfare. Carina is currently working on her master’s degree in school counseling at Montclair State University. Carina holds a bachelor’s degree in public Relations from Penn State University.
