Channing Nuñez | VP of Marketing & Communications

Channing has had the opportunity to work in talent development roles, HR, organizational health, and communications.

After moving back from New Orleans where she managed communications for Organization Health & Diversity & Inclusion, she joined a company called Creatives On Call, a staffing agency for individuals in creative specialties. She managed a number of large projects requiring instructional designers and elearning developers. It was amazing for her to hear their experiences in past roles, how they were supporting themselves or when they took the leap. It’s conversations and connecting with other professionals that make all the difference and the GCATD is the perfect community for doing so.

She spends a lot of time with Piper Annabel Lee and Madeline, her two king charles cavalier spaniels. On the weekend you will usually find her strolling her neighborhood with her dogs, taking photographs around the city, or playing her favorite sport: tennis.
