Meet the Teen Director

A Xavier University of LA alum, Angel has always been passionate about art, community, mental health, and service. She earned her bachelor's degree in psychology which led her to complete a service term with AmeriCorps where she was fortunate to work with brilliant scholars by providing additional academic and emotional support. This experience sparked an interest in incorporating art making and art history into lessons that fostered critical thinking and social-emotional learning.

She has spent her career working as an arts educator and mental wellness advocator, creating safe spaces in enrichment programs for everyone to feel welcome and validated as they learn to connect with themselves and others through creative expression. Outside of work she enjoys all things art related, traveling and reading. Angel is excited to be bringing her love of fun, youth development and community to the Boys and Girls Club as the Teen Director.
