Ana del Rocío
Ana is a mother of two with experience as a public educator and nonprofit executive. She is the first person in her family to earn a college degree, attending the University of Southern California on a full academic scholarship at the age of sixteen. Ana later earned graduate degrees from Harvard Kennedy School and Pepperdine Caruso School of Law. As the first executive director of Oregon Futures Lab, Ana worked on groundbreaking legislation for economic security, environmental justice, and access to healthcare. She also served on the boards of directors of several nonprofits and was appointed to the Oregon Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Review Committee, the Multnomah County Health Department Budget Advisory Committee, and the Multnomah County Tobacco Rules Advisory Committee.
Ana was elected to the David Douglas School Board, where she successfully expanded the availability of services in the school-based health clinic in collaboration with community-based advocates. Ana is now running for Multnomah County Commission, District 3, to bring her firsthand understanding of the problems facing everyday people to the policy- and budget-making experience needed to help solve them.
