Alma Velez

Director of Giving and Advancement

San Diego, CA

Something no one in the office knows about you?
I love anime and have an obsession with Studio Ghibli. The anime that made the most impact on me was "Grave of the Fireflies." It's a semi-autobiographical short story by Akiyuki Nosaka. The story is so tragic, it was made into an anime film with animation by Studio Ghibli.

What would surprise people about you?
I am a grandmother, Fabuela (Fabulous Abuela). I have an adult married son and two tween boys.

Comfort drink?
Lemon drop martinis, but they always get me in trouble.

Favorite place to take a visitor in Milwaukee?
Birch on Pleasant, the food is exquisite
