Alexia was born and raised in Chula Vista, and is very excited to be back for year three of serving the community with the HTHCV team! She received her BA from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and worked full time on-campus for a couple of years within the housing department focused on supporting first year college students. Alexia completed the Master’s Credential Cohort Program at the University of San Diego, with teaching placements in US History classrooms of San Diego Unified School District. In her free time she enjoys reading, listening to podcasts, attending musicals, playing volleyball, painting, traveling, and spending quality time with her partner, friends, and family. Alexia’s HTHCV journey now includes working closely with student leaders by advising the student-led Ethnic Studies elective class and the feminist club Asked For It (A.F.I)!
