With her background in public health, she has years of experience advocating for marginalized populations, with a targeted focus on advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) workforce initiatives. Her passion for integrating her public health skills with workforce development was ignited when she saw how frequently financial barriers prevent families of color from accessing necessary health care . She finds great fulfillment in working toward economic justice by collaborating with employers to refine their hiring practices and elevate overlooked young adults for career-track jobs.
In addition to client services work, Francisca has authored blog posts on Forbes, supporting companies in creating an inclusive culture. Most recently, she was also interviewed by Bloomberg to share expertise on the impact of skills-based practices.
In her downtime, she enjoys reading, dancing and music. She obtained her Master of Public Health degree from Boston University with a dual focus in global health and maternal and child health, and graduated with honors from Seton Hall University with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology.
