Paul Vazquez

Director of Operations

After working for many years in the for-profit world, I was looking for a change – hoping to do something I felt good about – which is when I found Alliance for Smiles.  The AfS mission of permanently changing the lives of both children and their communities was definitely something I could feel good about.

I just celebrated my fifteenth anniversary at AfS, so I have been here almost from the beginning. I have watched this wonderful organization grow (and have grown myself) over these years.  During my time here I have been on ten medical missions, and have met some of the most wonderful people in the world and watched them transform people’s lives forever.
