Aileen has a passion for building a healthier community. When she first learned about the grave statistics of childhood obesity in the City of Chino, she was motivated to obtain a formal education in public health in order to be efficient and effective in helping educate the community about access to resources, food choices, and medical coverage.
Aileen is self-motivated and a self-starter. She always thinks that if no one is there to do it, then she will. During this pandemic, Aileen continues to mobilize herself and others to find ways to help others get tested for COVID-19. As a CORE volunteer, she has provided LA County residents with information on where to schedule an appointment and answer questions that concerns her community.
Aileen has been preparing for epidemics, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, since 2010. Aileen learned about the Alexandria, Virginia Medical Reserve Corps and enlisted to be a part of a team of clinical and non-clinical experts. Today, Aileen has continued her work as a volunteer for the Los Angeles Medical Reserve Corps and is helping prepare for the mass vaccination sites.
Trained in learning about community policing. Aileen has worked in a high profiled environment, such as the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative Program Management Office at the U.S. Department of Justice and has a very strong understanding of domestic terrorism and the need for community justice.
