Growing up in the Central Valley, Esther has seen first-hand the impacts of the built environment on small urban and rural communities. Working in various sectors such as local government, rural and urban clinics, and non-profits has given her a unique understanding of the challenges in advancing the needs of public health and social justice interventions.

The REACH program helped to advance policies that promote access to walking and biking facilities to Latino communities in Fresno, Stanislaus, and Kern Counties.
