Migdalia believes that with enough drive and the right connections you can do anything. As Chief of Staff for the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development, she is committed to fostering a labor and workforce system that provides equal opportunity in an ever changing economy.
Prior to joining state government, Migdalia spent over 17 years in the private sector. She started her career with PricewaterhouseCoopers working in the International Assignment Solutions group. This work led to a 2-year international assignment in New Zealand, an experience that shaped her view of the world and her place in it. Looking for an opportunity to shift more into consulting, Migdalia accepted an opportunity to work in a mid-size company. A leader in global mobility, AIRINC offered Migdalia the opportunity to further develop her consulting acumen while also taking part in a product-focused technology transformation. The myriad of roles she was able to take on fed her interest in exploring company operations and marketplace variability.
Excited to leverage her expertise for a mission she is passionate about, Migdalia spent the next 3 years as the COO of ALPFA, a national non-profit organization focused on advancing opportunities for Latinos. This role solidified her brand as a leader who drives results and maximizes operational efficiencies.
Having spent 8 years in the Army National Guard to pay for her education, she fundamentally understands the drive and tenacity needed to succeed in the absence of opportunity. Finding ways to inspire individuals and organizations to look beyond the resume to see the talent within is one of her top priorities in life.

More recently, Migdalia served as President of the ALPFA Boston Chapter Board of Directors, sat on Mayor Martin Walsh’s Women’s Commission and currently serves on the board of Junior Achievement of Northern New England.
