I’m Vanessa Fuentes and I’m thrilled to be joining your state advocacy team advocating for healthier communities! I’ve been with the American Heart Association for over four years serving as a grassroots advocacy strategist.

I have mobilized You’re the Cure advocates throughout the SouthWest region in support of quality affordable health care, improved access to healthy food, and helped bring smoke-free indoor air to thousands of residents.
I love telling advocates’ stories and bringing your voice to life. I’m a firm believer that each story of survival and experience is what truly helps us drive our mission in being a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. You may hear from me from time to time or see me at the state capitol. Feel free to say hi and share what inspires YOU to advocate for heart. I would love to meet you and hear your story!
