Hello! I am a first-generation Filipino-American and a California native. I have always had a natural curiosity about the world and an eagerness to immerse myself in different cultures. My fascination to learn about other cultures and travel motivated me study geography. Now, with a BA in geography from CUNY Hunter College, I pursued many opportunities that focused on cultural and global studies which brought forth my interest for social justice and public service work. I started my career in the non-profit sector during my college years as both an intern and volunteer in Rwanda and the Philippines. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to fulfill my dreams of traveling abroad – I’ve visited 20 countries and counting! 

After graduation, I landed a position in fundraising and grant writing for a non-profit focused on computer science education. Working previously in international human rights-based organizations, this was somewhat uncharted territory for me! Nonetheless, I found myself intrigued by technology and the start-up environment!   

Here at Healthy Bytes, I am drawn to the candor of my colleagues and the positive office culture. I thrive in start-up environments and look forward to contributing even more! I find insurance challenging in that carriers can be protective of their dollars. This is interesting to me because when working for non-profits in the past, donors wanted to give you the funds to succeed. But I am going to bat for you! 

Also, as a new mother, I am interested in learning more about nutrition and wellness to improve my family’s diet. Filipinos such as myself are natural “foodies;” food is deeply-rooted in my culture. Growing up, I was exposed to exotic and delicious food that was quite unhealthy! I want to educate my family more about nutrition and help them build better habits. I love to cook and create authentic Filipino dishes in a healthier way. I love that working here at Healthy Bytes combines my interests in customer service and health!
