Stella comes with a science background particularly in the field of cancer research for almost 20 years. She recently changed jobs to be closer to her kids and now works at the LAC+USC Medical Center. This allows her to spend quality time with her three kids (two in Gabrielino and one in Jefferson). She strongly believes parents need to be present in their children’s lives. This can benefit the kids’ development and their happiness.
As a new board member, Stella found a similar passion in SEF whose goal is to provide students with various programs, grants and opportunities in collaboration with all eight campuses in the SGUSD. She is excited to work with fellow members whom share the same goal. Say hello to Stella when you see her on campus or at her kids’ football, baseball and soccer games. Feel free to ask her any questions in regards to SEF and how much of a positive impact it brings to your kids.
