It may be Leticia Carrazana’s years of experience in banking that make her so good at giving, especially when it comes to volunteering and community leadership. In 2015, she joined Sabadell United Bank as Market Executive. She’s also worked at BB&T, Bank Atlantic, HSBC and Citigroup where Carrazana established herself as a trusted advisor to a diverse group of commercial, corporate and small business clients.

Carrazana serves on the board of the Women’s Fund of Miami Dade and for the second year in a row she’s co-chair for the group’s ‘Mujeres Giving Back’ event.

Carrazana is also on the board of the Lions Club of Hialeah Pan American, where she once served as president and vice-president. She volunteers with the MDGL Chamber of Commerce, the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and recently received the prestigious “Melvin Jones Fellow Award" and was asked to be on the Women's Advisory Committee for the World Outgames Miami 2017.

“I believe in giving back to the community,” she said. “This is just a bit of what I have done and continue to do for our community and the legacy I leave my daughter Natalia.”

Carrazana’s daughter is picking up the leadership torch. Natalia recently organized an event titled "Break the Silence" for LGBT community members to share how they have overcome obstacles and become great leaders in the community in order to empower our youth.
