Victoria Sánchez De Alba
Founder and President, De Alba Communications
Victoria Sánchez De Alba is a National News Emmy Award-winning former journalist-turned Communications professional who launched De Alba Communications in San Francisco, California, in 2001. She channels her passion for social justice into specializing in Multicultural Public Relations, “Telling the stories that don’t get told.” As a Bay Area chapter founding member and Lifetime member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Victoria is acknowledged nationally for her energy, creativity, passion, and persistence on best approaches for accessing regional, local, national and international media.
With Victoria’s leadership, De Alba Communications has become known for our ability to provide a wide range of strategic, integrated communication services. We are second to none when it comes to navigating the changing media landscape and leveraging content across multiple platforms.
Fluent in English and Spanish, Victoria has a professional background in television journalism and investigative reporting, with past positions that include the Center for Investigative Reporting, Inc. – where she was part of an Emmy award-winning national news team; ABC/7 KGO-TV, San Francisco; and CBS KOVR TV-13, Sacramento. Victoria maintains strong relationships with English language and multicultural media across the U.S.
Victoria is also dedicated to helping create a more socially responsible world. She grew up in the Salad Bowl Capital of the World – Salinas, California – where she worked summers in the agricultural fields with her family, harvesting produce and fruit. That experience has made her sensitive to issues faced by working families, such as health risks related to pesticides, healthcare access, the need to improve working conditions, and other social inequalities.
In 2017, Victoria was nominated for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Woman of the Year. Her groundbreaking, 10-week campaign heightened public awareness through the news media and community outreach about pesticide exposure faced by farmworkers and the link to non-Hodgkin-Lymphoma (NHL). Victoria led the campaign in honor of her father, Sebastian Sanchez, who worked in the Salinas Valley agricultural fields and passed away to NHL in 2002.
Victoria gives back to the community by serving as co-advisor for the Felix Elizalde La Raza Education Fund of the San Francisco Foundation – a scholarship fund for journalism and communications majors. She remains an active member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
