Leticia Gutierrez

Government Relations and Community Outreach Director

713.429.5160 Ext. 406

As the Director of Government Relations and Community Outreach, Leticia keeps abreast of policy developments and oversees engagement with elected officials and stakeholders to advance AAH’s goals. She was born in Mexico and came to Houston as a child, eventually graduating from Milby High School and the University of St. Thomas. Prior to joining AAH, she served as the Chief of Staff at the Houston City Council and is currently a fellow of the Community Bridges program at Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research.

Her passion for safe air for all started as she raised her children in the East End of Houston, where she noticed the poor air quality, and that one of her children experienced asthma when living there. When Leticia isn’t working, she is likely out volunteering in the community or spending time with her family.
