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 Development Coordinator — implementing our fundraising strategy and campaign programs.
Prior to joining PowerPAC.org, I ran the California Democratic Party 2008 campaign operations in San Bernardino County. As one of the country’s fastest growing counties, I took on a rapidly growing area that had been overlooked and developed civic engagement training modules, implemented innovated new media strategies, and attracted and deployed a volunteer team of youth that contacted close to 1000 voters per night. My work helped turn San Bernardino County “blue” for the first time in modern history.
In college, I was active in Greek Life and student government, sitting on the Panhellenic Executive Board at California State University of Fullerton. In addition, I coordinated philanthropic projects and events such as Donate Life Walk, Beach Clean Up, Camp Titan, Ronald McDonald House and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
I am a proud alumna of American University, holding a BA from the School of Public Affairs. Also a graduate of the university’s training institutes – Campaign Management Institute, and Women & Politics Institute. I am a member and former Communications Chair for the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum DC Chapter. I am also a member of the Filipino Young Professionals of D.C., and alumna of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. In my spare time I like to travel, try new recipes, and blog.
