Ruby Resendez was born in Carrizo Springs, Texas, a small town southwest of San Antonio, to a single mother who managed and operated a small business. The only daughter, she quickly learned how to take direction and become helpful while work efficiently in an office setting where her mother worked for over 30 years.
Ruby has dedicated a lot of her time and efforts in making the San Antonio LGBT chamber a viable working part of the city during her time. She was featured in Affinity, Inc. Magazine in 2013 as a Texas Chamber leader setting the groundwork for a solid future. She has been awarded San Antonio Business Journal’s 2014 40 under 40 as an upcoming business leader in San Antonio. During that same year she was recognized as one of 20 San Antonio upcoming Latino Leaders in the San Antonio community by Latino Leaders Magazine. In 2015 she completed the Latina Leadership program by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, attended the Women’s Campaign School at Yale and joined the UIW Ettling Center for Civic Leadership Cardinal Latina Mentoring Program. In 2016 she has been appointed to the Mayor’s Council on Police-Community Relations and has joined the Board at the Maestro Entrepreneur Center.
Ruby is the Managing Partner of Cilantro Creative graphic design agency. With over 10 years of printing, marketing and accounting experience she has taken her experience to create her own small LGBT owned and operated business. Working with local non-profit and for profit institutes she is able to showcase her agencies work as well as her dedication to her client success. She has also recently launched a new business TruckBud as a one way delivery service. Official launch will be in August 2017.
We are grateful for all the hard work that Ruby has done by being a pioneer in cultivating the LGBT community in San Antonio. We admire her drive and heart!
