Quierra joined the Ed Fund team in October 2015 as the Special Events Coordinator. She comes from UC Davis, where she worked in Ceremonies and Special Events and Student Affairs, as well as participating in multiple events to help local communities shine. She is also a UC Davis alum (Go Ags!), earning a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Human Development. She hopes to incorporate her knowledge of event planning and passion for people in order to not only support, but celebrate the future of Oakland students, teachers, and communities.
As a California native who’s lived in southern, central, and northern areas, she’s been able to attend a wide range of schools. Because of her own opportunities, she knows just how important a system of support is; not just for students, but for their schools and their communities.
When she’s not planning events, she can be found geeking out about books, dance, and photography.
