Grants Management Associate
Laura came to EBCF after two decades working in youth development, education, and community development—first in South Central LA and more recently in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. She joined EBCF in October 2015 as Grants Management Associate and has been learning constantly in her new field of philanthropy. This career change allows Laura to continue and expand her commitments to non-profit organizations and social justice issues in her local community of Oakland and the East Bay more broadly.
Laura received her Masters in Sociology from UC San Diego, with emphases in race relations, immigration, and popular culture. She loves all types of food, but especially anything Korean. When not at work, she loves traveling and taking long rides on her motorcycle.
