“We are delighted to welcome Norma Serrato to our award-winning Abrakadoodle franchise system,” said Rosemarie Hartnett, CFE, President and Co-Founder of Abrakadoodle, Inc. “She brings an impressive educational background and a career in management along with a strong belief in the importance of education and creativity, which I am confident will help ensure her success.”
Norma Serrato earned an MBA from Rice University in 2013. She worked in project management and business consulting for 20 years, having transferred from Mexico to Houston in 1996 where she worked for a building materials company. A downsizing caused Norma to re-think her priorities. “I deeply value education and wanted to be a part of something meaningful. When I read about Abrakadoodle I was very attracted by the program’s approach towards stimulating creativity and developing new skills, besides teaching art styles, techniques and art history” Ms. Serrato commented.
Born in Monterey, Mexico and having traveled extensively for business and for pleasure across every continent except Oceania, Norma Serrato comes to her Abrakadoodle business with a strong world view, which is complemented by a family history in education. She remarked, “Abrakadoodle stands apart with its quality multi-cultural education programs that can make a difference in the lives of children. Besides, Abrakadoodle develops creativity; something highly valued in today’s economy.”
