We are thrilled to announce the promotion of Camila Pino to Senior Insurance Navigator in recognition of her dedication, expertise in insurance, client-centered approach, and positive impact.

Camila joined NADAP during a critical staffing shortage and a significant influx of immigrants in NYC. As a new navigator, Camila swiftly mastered various insurance plans and conducted on-site enrollment services in different Latino communities. Within just 4 months, she was mentoring junior navigators! Additionally, she contributed by translating materials and program webpage into Spanish.

Camila's passion for her work is palpable. "It's incredibly meaningful to assist asylum seekers who have just arrived in this country and need support the most," she shares. She not only helps clients find the right insurance but also connects them with essential city resources.

In her new role as Senior Navigator, Camila aims to streamline procedures and enhance logistics to improve efficiency and empower clients with better access to their insurance benefits.
