Noelia’s roots, both with San Mateo and One San Mateo, run deep. She was born and raised in San Mateo. Likewise, she was a charter member of One San Mateo. Meaning that in both cases she has been with us since the beginning.
From a family of Guatemalan immigrants, Noelia has long recognized the importance of and played a part in working for a San Mateo that has a place for all people. She has put in innumerable hours working for her community, engaging with some of the central issues of our time: housing, immigration, education.
