Amelia Hernandez, Associate Manager, Graphic Design & Social Media
Amelia has been a “doodler” her entire life. Whether it be on a desk at school, in a sketch book, or on a team meeting agenda, she has always felt the need to leave her mark. It wasn’t until graphic design, that Amelia discovered she could make a career out of her talents.
Being a Kansas City native, Amelia wanted to stay close to family, so she earned her BFA in Visual Communication from the University of Kansas. Her last semester, Amelia pursued opportunities for internships and was selected as the graphic design intern at the Kansas City Sports Commission. After her graduation, Amelia remained on the staff as a part-time fellow through the summer of 2017.
Not long after, Amelia accepted the Graphic Design & Social Media Associate Manager position, joining the marketing team. With this role, Amelia creates marketing materials both print & digital and event design for all local events such as the Kansas City Marathon, Kansas City’s Big 12 Run and the WIN for KC Women’s Sports Awards Celebration. In addition to her design, Amelia manages all the social media platforms for both WIN for KC and the Kansas City Sports Commission.
