Evelyn’s strong commitment to building healthy communities that surpass the barriers of access stem from her growing up in the diverse communities of the South Bay Area of Los Angeles County. As a Southern California native from Hawthorne, she is proud of the diversity that lies within her county. As the eldest daughter of Latino immigrants, she places strong values in family, community, strong work ethic, and education. She believes health and education are the foundation to building a vivid future of our youth and our communities. She is passionate about mentoring and empowering our youth and building healthy communities in which every individual has the opportunity to thrive. She received her undergraduate degree from Loyola Marymount University where she pursued her degree in Biology. She is proud to continue her passion for civic-service and medicine through UCLA PRIME (Program In Medical Education). She is elated to be part of the Lennox Health Fair team as the marketing coordinator as it is a health fair that is close to her heart, as it takes place in the heart of the city of her infancy. She is ecstatic to be part of a team that shares her life-long vision of being on a healthcare team dedicated to providing all patients with accessible, high quality, affordable and sound medicine and very much looks forward to helping her team work alongside the Lennox community to bring the best it has to offer to one of our most vibrant and beautiful cities.
