Judyth Piazza interviews Norma Castillo, General Manager of Sarah Book Publishing

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Norma Castillo graduated from the University of Texas/Pan American with a Major in Interdisciplinary Studies and a minor in Music.  She taught Fine Arts for 10 years.  She moved to Harlingen in 1995 and quit her teaching career in 2002 to pursue a career in Marketing, Public Relations and Sales.  Norma became Vice-President of Public Relations and Marketing for Hino Electric Power Co. and excelled in her sales performance. 

After proving herself to her boss in regards to the ability to market and sell electricity, she convinced him that it was time to grow into the McAllen area.  Norma picked out a location, purchased the furniture, set up the IT crew and brought on a sales team.  Sales were just incredible in the Rio Grande Valley.

In 2008, Norma became the Director of Marketing/Community Relations for Golden Palms Retirement and Healthcare.  She planned numerous monthly events for the community and organized health fairs, mardi gras festivals, fiesta days for the Winter Texans to political forums here in the Texas Room. 

Norma is now employed as Director of Marketing/Sales for RGV + Beyond Arts & More magazine and is the publishing manager for Sarah Book Publishing.  Norma is a people person and is always eager to plan the next event.
