I was born and raised in Daly City, CA and currently live in the best City around, San Francisco of course. Social work has been my life both educationally and professionally. I work for the City and County of San Francisco as the Homeless Youth Programs Manager. Homelessness has been my passion for the last 17 years…I started young. Being a Board Member of Healthy Planet allows me to bring some of my social work and nonprofit administration experience to the table. In addition, it is allowing me to explore a new issue I am becoming passionate about…healthy living! From a chronic hot dog and chicken nugget eater to now being a full-fledged vegetarian, there is a lot to learn on this journey of food consciousness and Healthy Planet is a great teacher. Oh, and although I am passionate about homelessness and health, nothing trumps my love for the Giants and Niners. I do have priorities.
