Associate Director, Career Pathway Connections
Flor Romero is the Associate Director of Career Pathway Connections where she supports the Strong Workforce grant to strengthen career pathways for youth across SLATE-Z schools in South LA.
Prior to joining LAPF, Romero worked in marketing and advertising where she managed campaigns across the state dedicated to underserved populations. Her professional background has been dedicated to serving youth in the greater Los Angeles area including positions at Jumpstart, Kidsave International, and USC Athletics, where she led a successful literacy program across LAUSD for elementary school students.
Romero earned her B.A. in Psychology from UCLA and soon after earned her Master of Social Work degree from USC with a focus on Social Change & Innovation. In late 2021, she was nominated by President Biden to serve on the AmeriCorps Board of Directors. Romero also volunteers her time as a mentor to first-generation college students, as she is passionate about educational equity.
One of Romero’s favorite books of all time is The Little Prince, which she has read in three languages. In her spare time, she enjoys being outdoors, going to Dodger games, and eating ice cream.
