I’m the daughter of Filipino immigrants and a Southern California native currently residing in the D.C. metro area. My experiences and my family’s experiences greatly shaped my political interests and started my journey into social justice and to empower others.
I previously served as the Political Director to PowerPAC+ — a political action committee focused on supporting progressive candidates. As a new organization, I played a major role in its formation by building the technical infrastructure, development programs, and candidate recruitment processes. Prior to I was the Deputy Political Director for PowerPAC.org, a social justice advocacy organization whose mission is to empower underrepresented communities. Today, I am continuing my work with PowerPAC.org as the Political Director — implementing our campaign programs and fundraising strategy.
I am a proud alumna of American University, holding a BA from the School of Public Affairs, as well as a graduate of their Campaign Management Institute, Women & Politics Institute, and WeLEAD leadership program. I currently reside in Northern Virginia with my partner of 10 years and our two daughters. In my spare time I like to travel (including visits to Disneyland/Disney World), bake copious amounts of cookies, and blog.
