Luz joined our staff in August of 2019 as the Administrative Assistant. In this role, she primarily supports the Vice President of Development and the President in the Foundation’s fundraising work efforts but assists all departments when needed.
Before joining Napa Valley Community Foundation, Luz worked as the Development and Marketing Coordinator at Mentis, a local mental health nonprofit.
Luz is a Napa Valley native and feels extremely grateful her parents decided to settle in such a beautiful place more than 35 years ago, in search of a better future.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in Media Studies from the University of California Berkeley, and an associate’s degree in Social & Behavioral Sciences from Napa Valley College.
When not at work, Luz enjoys working out, spending time with family and friends, listening to music, and traveling, especially if it’s near a warm beach in the Caribbean.
