Fatima Djelmane Rodriguez is a native Angelino raised in the San Gabriel Valley. She attended Ramona Convent Secondary School, earned her BA in Communications from USC’s Annenberg School for Communication, and her MA from the University of Texas at Austin’s Radio, Television, and Film program. Upon graduating from UT Austin, Fatima began her search for work in the nonprofit sector. Devoted to community service, Fatima wanted to work for a grassroots organization focused on community building and empowerment. Her search led her to Proyecto Pastoral where she was employed as Development Associate, Development Director, and finally, Associate Director for nearly eight years. In her tenure at Proyecto, she helped build the organization’s infrastructure and established unprecedented financial stability for the organization. Fatima then transitioned to work as the Development Director for Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times in January 2013. She was drawn to their mission of building healthier lives for children with cancer and their families. She was promoted to Executive Director in October of 2017, excited to continue the fundraising success under her tenure as Development Director and work with the Camp community to deepen its impact across the board. Fatima was promoted to CEO and assumed the position on January 18th, 2022. She’s excited to be at the helm of RMHCSC, with a deep passion for the organization’s mission and deepening our impact throughout Southern California. Fatima enjoys spending time with her two girls, Ale and Emma, her husband Lucio and uses her creative talents to do makeup for friends and family in her spare time.
