Gaby Plaza

HR Manager

Why do you do what you do?

I have worked in nonprofits for almost 10 years. While deeply fulfilled by the direct service I was providing to my community, I knew that I could provide a greater impact through my administrative and organizational skills while also supporting those on the frontlines of direct service. When I found out about Community Works, I felt drawn to contribute to their mission of transforming justice. I have an immense respect for the impact that Community Works has done and continues to do and am honored to be a part of it.

As a HR Generalist, I work in tandem with our Human Resources Director, Leadership team and Finance team to create a safe and supportive environment for all CW staff. I have the pleasure of connecting with staff regularly to assist with their employment needs so that they can continue their amazing work.

When I’m not at CW, I’m hiking with my dog Kalifah, swimming, going to the beach, attending music festivals and taking road trips.
