Andrea first joined yli as a youth participant in Community Action Model (CAM), advocating for minimum price laws and price promotion in San Francisco. She later became the program intern where she continued to uplift Bay Area youth with her commentary and passions for organizing. She now joins us as a Program Coordinator for Healthy Online Platform for Everyone (H.O.P.E.) and tobacco prevention work in the San Mateo Office.
Andrea is a recent graduate of San Francisco State University receiving a bachelors in Latino/a Studies and Race and Resistance under the Ethnic Studies Department. Andrea hopes to create a healthy community space filled with history and resources to assist the activists of today.
Outside of work, Andrea enjoys creating playlists, or practicing her charcuterie boards skills with a book on standby to explore.
