Astrid Rodriguez Carranza is a Managing Director - Investments at Wells Fargo Advisors, which she joined in 1997. Astrid earned her bachelors degree in finance at Barry University. Notably, she is on the board of the Aqua Foundation for Women. This organization supports the LBT community in the South Florida area, and she plays an integral role in the Foundations ability to support its grants, scholarships, and initiatives. 

Aqua Foundation also spearheads a strong mentorship program. Each year the group sponsors women pursuing academic degrees and helps them pay for that education. It pairs younger members with senior members and helps them navigate the many professional milestones of their careers. In doing so, this group is shaping future LBT leaders of South Florida. 

On Carranza, the Foundation stated, her passionate support of Aqua's work is something she believes in strongly and [they] are fortunate to have her on [the] board.” 

Beyond her mentorship, Carranzas extracurriculars demonstrate her desire to give back; as a volunteer at the Paw Patrol Animal Rescue and Sanctuary.
