As a young child, Angelica grew up in a tight knit community in Mexicali, Baja California. Angelica learned the value of being part of a community and just how much neighborhoods can accomplish when people come together. When Angelica immigrated to the US as a teenager, it was natural for her to get involved in the community and be of service to others. Angelica’s passion grew when she had the opportunity to volunteer and later work for a non-profit that was focused on ending a variety of health disparities in the Latinx community in Maricopa County. Angelica brings her over 15 years of experience in the field of HIV/HCV/STI prevention. Angelica’s personal and professional goals are to be a supportive presence in people’s journey to a healthier life.
