Founded in 1964, it is America’s most prestigious and competitive non-partisan leadership development and public service program. In this capacity, he served as the White House Fellow for President Obama’s Domestic Policy Advisor Cecilia Munoz, working on Latino, immigration and business outreach in the Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs at the White House.
Prior to that, Felice led government sales and business development for Liberty Power Corp., the fastest-growing Hispanic-owned business in the U.S. He has also served as a strategy consultant for the president of Jackson Health Systems, and as a member of the University of Miami’s Energy Security Task Force.
