Leo joined the Fresno Building Healthy Communities team in 2021, as a Community Health Worker, and has since transitioned into the Project Manager role.
Leo and his family immigrated from Mexico when he was just five years old, and considers himself fortune for the opportunities he has had growing up. He graduated from UCLA with a bachelors in Psychobiology, with intention on serving public health. He's a firm believer that his parents were able to raise him to thrive based on the community support they had after coming to the US. His goal is to demonstrate the power of community through collective support and action.
In his spare time, Leo enjoys time with friends, thrift and vintage shipping and he prefers to bake rather than cook.
