Ruja Entcheva is the marketing and communications manager for CDP. In her role, Ruja manages all marketing and communications activities, including leading social media efforts, maintaining various websites, creating email campaigns and supporting other digital engagement activities.
Ruja’s passion for communications comes from a strong desire to do good and make a difference in the world. Prior to joining CDP, she executed strategic communications plans and led the development and implementation of social media strategies for a variety of organizations working in the social sector to help them connect with their audiences and strengthen their impact.
Most notably, Ruja worked on the development and creation of the Community Foundation of Sarasota County’s Be the One video, and on introducing Red Nose Day to Sarasota to raise money for children in poverty. She also led media outreach efforts for the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, the local chapter of a nationwide movement to increase the number of children reading on grade-level by the end of third grade.
Born in Bulgaria, Ruja now lives in Florida with her dog, Sirius Black. When she’s not planning the next social media campaign, you can find Ruja at a concert, playing with Sirius or traveling with her family. Ruja has a bachelor’s degree in Communications: Public Relations from the Florida State University.
