Corporate/Foundation Manager, Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta
Mirtha Vaca-Wilkens is the Corporate/Foundation manager of the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, which serves 34,000 girls in its 34 county service area and is able to provide its programs because of its 17,000 volunteers across the state.
Mirtha’s extensive, 14-year marketing background, in both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors, is a great asset to the organization. Some of her past experience includes serving as a Communications Consultant for an education and healthcare foundation and creating award-winning educational and fundraising videos for Seattle Children’s Hospital. Prior to her current role, Mirtha was a market-level project manager at Communiqué, where she primarily worked on the Chick-fil-A account, and an account manager at Mopdog Creative and Strategy, where she managed a variety of client accounts including CP Kelco, First Landmark Bank and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America.
Mirtha enjoys working with a team of “living learners” and appreciates how everyone faces challenges with grace and diligence.
As a person who is always on-the-go, she makes sure to enjoy the moments, “finding the funny” in all them—but her greatest joy is watching her three children grow, which keeps her grounded and able to view life with a fresh perspective.
