A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
Prior to joining the UCSB EAOP team, I served as the Corporate and Foundation Partnerships Associate for Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. In this role, I coordinated Corporate and Foundation stewardship activities, solicited donors, developed executive fundraising strategies and helped raise over 500K for college support as well as student programs/scholarships in one year.
I graduated in 2005 from the University of California Santa Barbara and received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Minor in Applied Psychology. I am a graduate of the Kern County Network for Children Leadership Development Program, the Just Communities - Institute for Equity in Education and am a certified parent liason after completing the Family Engagement Network Leadership Training.
I am happily married to Edgar Miranda and am the proud mother of Eva Sophia Miranda. I am a life-long learner and enjoy photography, reading, music and spending time with my family.
WHY I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT EAOP:
EAOP's mission is to assist first-generation, socio-economically disadvantaged, and English-language learners by helping them prepare for post secondary education, pursue graduate and professional school opportunities, and achieve success in the workplace. I strongly believe in the power of education and I find a strong sense of satisfaction and passion in guiding our youth towards a path of options and opportunities. In turn, our future community leaders will be prepared to make responsible and educated choices for our society.
