Communications and Outreach Intern
In May 2011, Leia became part of the NPC team as Communication and Outreach Intern. Her current roles include analyzing ParkScan entries, assisting in the Playground Initiative program, updating the NPC website, and providing overall general support to the NPC staff. She is currently a senior at San Francisco State University, pursuing a Bachelor’s in Geography/Environmental Science.
Originally from a beach town outside San Diego, CA, Leia grew up loving the coastal lifestyle of constantly going to the beach and thriving in the sun. Moving for school, she quickly developed a new appreciation for the lively, cultured community of San Francisco and now enjoys exploring city life. Her favorite parks in the city are Alamo Square and Dolores Park, but Carlsbad State Beach of her hometown is her all-time favorite spot to relax.
Through her internship, she hopes to grasp how an local non-profit operates, network with those in the field, and continually aid to the SF park community.
