As a first-generation college graduate, Bri is proud to be a Board Member of the MCM. Bri’s mother and two older sisters fled to the US from El Salvador before she was born, to escape the effects of domestic violence. This helped brew her passion for community-based public health. As a mental health advocate in Marin County, she was a member of the founding group for the Empowerment Clubhouse in 2017. The following year she became a certified Domestic Violence counselor through the Center for Domestic Peace. Bri went on to join the Transition Age Youth (TAY) Advisory Council, to bring her lived-experience as an at-risk youth affected by gang violence to service planning in Marin. Bri is currently working with the University of San Diego (USD) to execute research on homelessness and food insecurity in order to create innovative interventions. In her free time, she enjoys walking her dogs, making beats on her computer, and traveling with her loved ones.
