Jaime moved to the Bay Area after graduating high school in Honduras. He attended a local community college before transferring to the University of California-Berkeley, where his coursework focused on the political economy of late industrialization and development. After graduating, Jaime worked as a multi-subject tutor, while volunteering at a college-access nonprofit that targeted low-income, minority students in Silicon Valley. He then moved on to work on the design, implementation and evaluation of professional development and performance evaluation systems for teachers and principals at Oakland Unified School District as an Education Pioneers fellow. At WWS, Jaime wants to develop a more thorough understanding of how to foster efficient and effective collaborations among public, nonprofit and private sector organizations to improve educational, career and socioeconomic outcomes for low-income individuals. In addition to his MPA, Jaime is also pursuing an MBA, with a concentration in operations and strategic management, at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. In the summer of 2017, Jaime interned for the Pacific Northwest team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, where he worked on education projects centered in the Seattle area.
