Andrew Herrera, MPH, MBA - Executive Director, Curamericas
Before joining Curamericas Global in 2009, Andrew served with the City of Raleigh Parks and Recreation for four years and spent a year studying in Ecuador. In 2004 Andrew was a State Department Ambassador to Jiaonan, China through the American Field Service. He has a B.A. in Hispanic Studies and Religious Studies from East Carolina University and an MPH from the University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health in Public Health Leadership and a concentration in Field Epidemiology (August 2017). He has recently finished his MBA (June 2019) at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Traveling each week for classes at Booth allowed Andrew to expand Curamericas Global’s network, apply in-class learning immediately to Curamericas programs and exchange principles of Curamericas with colleagues in the for-profit sector. As Executive Director of Curamericas Global since December 2013, Andrew has been responsible for leading strategic initiatives, development of the Board of Directors and the day-to-day operations of an international Nongovernmental Organization.
