Honoree of Hispanic Women of Distinction Luncheon August

​​​​​​​​Lina Jankus, President and Founder, Lina Jankus & Associates Corporation, was among the honorees at the Hispanic Women of Distinction 15 Anniversary Celebration Charity Awards Luncheon and Expo August 12, 2016.​ This is a yearly event that honors outstanding leaders in the community. 

Lina came from Colombia  to the United States with her mother and brother in search of the “American Dream” but her heart is big enough to be both here and back in her native country.

I hope to someday solidly build a circle of Latina women committed to change through a dynamic sisterhood.
