Roslynn Velasquez

Community Outreach Officer at the Black Sheep Agency 

 

Roslynn is the Community Outreach Officer at the Black Sheep Agency, a cause-driven brand shop that activates communities around brands, organizations and projects that matter. She is a connector and relationship builder for clients, constantly seeking opportunities to see the organizations she works with find ways to grow their impact through collaboration, bold partnerships and community centric marketing.

 

A self-appointed Houston native (she was born in Ohio, but got here as quick as she could), she is an advocate for the city and the organizations, people and business doing great things here. Prior to Black Sheep, she drove community building and marketing at the Houston Technology Center (HTC), a nonprofit technology accelerator.


Roslynn graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication. During her time at Texas A&M she worked with the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurships, which spurred her passion for small business and cause-driven work.
