Catherine M. Arambula

President, MANA de San Diego

San Diego, California

Catherine is the president of MANA de San Diego, a national women’s organization whose mission it is to assist young girls and women succeed by providing them with skills, tools and support.

Catherine is a financial representative and small business owner under Northwestern Mutual. Catherine focuses her practice on successful professionals and business owners, helping create, protect and manage their wealth. Professional women and their families are especially important to her, as she understands that professional women do not follow a traditional life stage “road map.” Before joining Northwestern Mutual, Catherine worked with the public for 20 years, held senior management posts in multiplex entertainment properties and the transportation industry.

A native San Diegan, Catherine believes in giving back to her community by volunteering with organizations such as the MANA De San Diego. She is also a board member of the City of San Diego Small Business Advisory Board where she was appointed by the Mayor and approved by City Council. She serves as president of WESUPPORTU, secretary of Latinas in Business Foundation, president of the National Latina Business Women Association San Diego and corporate sponsorship chair for San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association where she has proudly been a member since 2008.

Her work ethic and her personal driving force have garnished Catherine many recognitions and accolades but she credits her parents for inspiring and guiding her to always do her best.
