Roxana Gomez joined Councilmember Gonzalez’s office as an Intern, now a Legislative Assistant (!), with interests in public health and immigrant rights. As the daughter of Honduran, first-generation immigrants, she is a passionate learner about social determinants of health and social justice components that determine adverse health outcomes. Roxana began her work at the City of Seattle with the Human Services Department as an intern investigating barriers inhibiting participation in the Summer Food Service Program.

Roxana graduated from the University of Washington earning her bachelor’s degree in Public Health in March 2017, and is SO excited to be a part of #TeamLorena.
