Ms. Corrales earned an MA in Applied Anthropology from SJSU in 2010 and a second MA in Education from UC Irvine in 2014. The focus of her work and research agenda was on how to increase retention of first-generation, low-income, college students of color by improving campus climate and increasing their sense of belonging.
After more than a decade in higher education, Ms. Corrales made the transition into her current role as a Project Administrator for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, where she uses her experience as a research associate and program administrator to focus on operations and policy. Ms. Corrales plans to continue participating in work and volunteer opportunities that contribute to a more equitable society.
