ASSISTANT ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
Nothing gives Anahi Leyva greater joy than knowing that her work positively impacts clients. Her passion for communications started when she realized the influence that strong storytellers could have on the world. After just one course in public relations, she knew that was the field she wanted to work in.
At Hawthorne, Anahi enjoys working with clients while applying her knowledge of B2B communications and six years of experience in the client service industry. Anahi is dedicated to building and fostering relationships between organizations and their stakeholders. Her ability to listen and connect with people has allowed her to successfully resolve conflicts and drive positive results in client-facing and internal team environments.
Before joining Hawthorne, Anahi worked as a client relations specialist for Panasonic, working closely with Mcdonald's operators from across the country and assisting them with everything from product sales and services to operational issues. This experience allowed Anahi to understand the dynamics of a global business, specifically in operations, deployment, and supply chain. The peak of COVID-19 created major disruptions in production and manufacturing due to shortages and delays from imports. During this time, Anahi served as a liaison between the supply chain team and clients to provide updates on pending orders and communicate changes in estimated time of arrivals.
Anahi graduated from DePaul University College of Communication with a BA in Public Relations and Advertising. In her free time, she enjoys a good latte from her local coffee shop, working on her photography skills, and attending live music events.
