We are so honored to introduce you to Esmeralda Jimenez, "Esmy", the newest member of our team. Esmy will be serving as our Resource Development and Community Engagement leader. She has been volunteering with us for months offering her compassionate heart and incredible savvy to our work. 

Esmy grew up in Eastern WA and knows first hand the difficulties of living without legal status. The daughter of campesinos, she attended the University of Southern California in Los Angeles where she studied environmental science and international relations. Driven by curiosity and creativity, she hopes to find places that foster development of programs that bridge the gaps between unique communities.

We know Esmy to be a force of nature. She keeps herself busy hustling for Social Justice everywhere she goes. She also currently serves as a mentor for Young Women Empowered and hosts a community garden through Seattle Tilth's Just Garden program. 

If you want to learn more about our work, how to collaborate, or what we are up to, Esmy will always be available for a good ol' cafecito. You can welcome her here
