Sierra is the Associate Director of Data, Monitoring, & Evaluation, a College Forward student alumna, and a three-time AmeriCorps alumna. Her favorite part of College Forward is seeing the “ripple effect” among students as they help their friends and family members pursue their higher education goals. Austin-born and Austin-raised, she graduated from Southwestern University with her B.A. in English and from The University of Texas at Austin with her M.S. in Social Work. When she’s not hard at work and diving into data, she loves knitting with her friends, pratique la langue française, reading comics, and telling bad jokes.
