Julieta has 10 years of experience in community empowerment and engagement. Prior to joining Valley Metro, Julieta worked with City of Phoenix’s former Mayor Greg Stanton, addressing constituent and community leaders’ needs through outcome-focused initiatives. Julieta started her career as a community organizer for Stand for Children, an education advocacy organization. Through relationship building and grassroots organizing, Julieta developed parent leaders in South Phoenix to spearhead a campaign overriding two district-wide budgets and elect two board members to represent the interest of students. These experiences allow Julieta to connect with community members to advocate and to access public transit.
