Help us welcome Clarissa Guzman (she/her/ella) to the Appleseed Team! Clarissa is our Weitz Fellow for 2022-23. She works closely with Collective Impact Lincoln and the Health Care Access team, and manages our volunteer program.
Clarissa graduated from Carleton College in Minnesota. During her time in school, she worked closely with a local nonprofit, Growing Up Healthy, to increase access to educational materials about climate change in Spanish by collaborating with Latine community members.
“The first thing I noticed when I moved to Lincoln was the community’s connectedness, unity, and desire to support one another. I am excited to get to know and work alongside such a welcoming and passionate community!”
Fun fact: Outside of work, Clarissa loves listening to music and taking strolls in parks. If you see her around, say hello and feel free to talk to her about TV shows, your favorite artists/songs, and food! Connect with Clarissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
