Board Member


As a professional in Business Development, I work locally for a biotech firm, Confirm BioSciences.  My history of commitments is volunteering with enthusiasm.  I enjoy challenges, such as seeking solutions in diminishing food insecurity. Using gleaning, community engaging, and cultivating greater awareness, I strongly feel passionate about Harvest CROPS’ mission.  Together we can make a difference.

Having moved to California six years ago, I discovered Harvest CROPS. .  With my children, we wanted to pick fruit, rather than see it rot on the ground, especially in San Diego North County.  Sergio has been a source of inspiration.  With my family, we enjoy our Saturdays and Sundays harvesting. We continue to glean fruit for people in need.  I feel serving on the Board is a privilege; whereas, volunteering is one of my favorite things to do in San Diego.
