Noemi Rodriguez
Hi, my name is Noemi Rodriguez and I first joined Moorpark College back in 2020, working for the Financial Aid office. I am a first-generation college graduate and former community college student. My education started at Los Angeles Mission College where I then transfer to CSU Northridge and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Central American Studies. I am proud to be half Guatemalan and half Mexican. Once I graduated, I completed 2 years of services under the AmeriCorps program, after which I chose to continued my education. I attended Woodbury University, where I received my Masters of Arts degree in Organizational Leadership and then later in my career, I attended Kansas State University where I obtained my Masters of Science degree in Academic Advising. Much of my career background has been associated with educational nonprofits in the Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley areas where I worked with diverse groups of students and families.
