Maxie's professional experience includes coalition management of the San Diego Green New Deal Alliance, working as a Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) organizer and policy advocate with Climate Action Campaign and participating as a Stewardship Committee member with the San Diego Food Systems Alliance.
Her skills in food systems and nutrition, management, partnership development, and organizing within the intersections of social, environmental and climate justice, will add such value to the Healthy Food in Health Care program and our organization as a whole - informing the transformation of the socioeconomic structure of our food system in a way that centers environmental justice and advances sustainability in a truly holistic sense.
When Maxie does have some downtime, she enjoys reading, hiking, and learning about native plants and medicinal uses of plants. She has also been on a journey of intentionally reconnecting with her Indigenous Taíno / Caribbean Arawak ancestry by learning the language, traditions and creation stories.
