Gillian was born and raised in San Francisco and has been a part of Coleman since she was three. Her mother was a PMAC Fellow, and now Gillian is one too! She began broadening her knowledge by working with organizations that provide families access to affordable housing, rent relief, and resource assistance. She was also a first-grade teaching assistant and tutor at an elementary school. That experience led her to continue working with children and get to know them better to give them the knowledge they need to thrive. She’s also been an ASL and Spanish instructor. In Gillian’s free time, she likes to explore art museums and create art herself. She also enjoys camping and hiking.
