Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has recently appointed Silvia Castellanos to the Children's Trust Governing Board of Miami-Dade County.

Castellanos has built an impressive résumé over the course of her career.  She is the Director of External Affairs for Banyan Community Health Center where she works on developing Banyan’s, federal, state, and local strategy.  Castellanos has also worked with DeSantis before, serving as the South Florida Regional Representative for the Governor’s Office and managed logistics for Gov. DeSantis’ press conferences and events in South Florida.

Before working for the Office of the Governor, she was a Senior Aide for the Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee of the Florida House of Representatives.

Additionally, Castellanos has earned a bachelor's degree from Florida International University and a master's degree in Public Administration from Florida State University, leading to the governor's appointment of her to the Children's Trust Governing Board.

The Children's Trust Governing Board is a taxpayer funded institution that advocates for and funds strategic investments that improve the lives of all children and families in Miami-Dade County.

The board wields its power through public policy advocacy, which has a major effect on legislation produced in the Florida Legislature with more bills that protect children and families.

The Children's Trust Governing Board runs plenty of programs.  If you're interested in taking part, see more information here.
