Under Ingrid’s leadership, First 5 San Francisco is positioned to advance its mission for greater impact in San Francisco’s early childhood system through its focus on advocacy, equity, and systems change. As a native of San Francisco’s Mission community and a child of Salvadoran immigrants, Ingrid has zeal and passion for equity. Her background includes more than two decades of experience leading early childhood systems of care and education for children and families. As a Senior Program Officer at First 5, she led San Francisco’s pioneering Preschool for All initiative. Prior to First 5, Ingrid worked in the nonprofit sector where she passionately advocated for improved public policy for vulnerable children and their families. This foundational experience provided Ingrid with a core understanding of how to target the factors that support systems change and racial equity. Ingrid holds an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.
