Alma's focus at UpMetrics is to provide support with all things HR and Accounting. Prior to UpMetrics, Alma spent five years working in the education space. Having graduated from the University of California, Davis with a Bachelors in Human Development and a minor in Education, Alma recently relocated back home to the Bay Area in order to be closer to her family network.
"UpMetrics' focus on empowering impact organizations to use data to tell their stories is phenomenal," Alma says. "The ability to share the impact a program or organization has on the populations they serve is powerful. In a data-driven society, having numbers to back the hard, passionate work that is being done is imperative to ensuring more funding is invested in these organizations. We are supporting the good fights."
Alma's interest in education and after-school sports goes back to her childhood. "Soccer was a big part of growing up," she says. "We played as a family and continue to be big fans of watching the games. After high school I was a recreation coordinator. It is there I found my passion to advocate and support the development of our youth."
She continues: "In my last role I was a mentor and intern manager for high school students in South LA. Being able to be there for these bright young minds inspires me to keep going everyday. I look forward to finding avenues here in the Bay Area to stay involved."
