Pia provides support to Community Partners' program team. She is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine, where she received a B.S. in Public Health Sciences. It was there that her appreciation for the nonprofit sector began to develop. After working with several collegiate and community-based organizations, she was able to travel to the Philippines and participate in a medical outreach program that served victims of natural disasters. Pia continues to gain knowledge and understanding of the nonprofit sector, as her position at Community Partners allows for constant interaction with nonprofit and philanthropic leaders across California.
