Ariana Galvan is a governance specialist on our compliance team. Here she tells us about what she likes best about working in workforce development and how she enjoys spending her free time.

If you had $30,000 to donate to a workforce development program, what would you want done with it?

I would invest in childcare. I grew up with a single mom and saw how challenging it can be for single parents in the workforce without accessible, affordable and high-quality childcare.

What do you like best about working in workforce development? 

Aside from the importance of the work we do, the best thing about working in workforce development for me is the ability to work closely with so many passionate and dedicated members of our community. Our board and committee members volunteer their time to create economic opportunity for others, advance DEI issues, launch employment and training programs with us and ultimately make the Workforce Partnership the best we can be. I feel incredibly lucky to work with them to advance our goals as an organization and as a community.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? Any new hobbies since we started working from home? 

I love watching football, supporting the Padres until the end of time, reading memoirs (Jessica Simpson’s is a recent favorite, 10/10!) and pilates.
