Lamara has always been passionate about social justice, equality, and the betterment of youth. After graduating Binghamton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Lamara decided to serve as an AmeriCorps* VISTA for the Parent Engagement Project in Sacramento, CA. With the completion of a rewarding, insightful and successful year out west, Lamara will continue her national service journey closer to home. Born and raised in Bronx, NY, the presence of impoverished communities are too familiar. From 2012-2013, she served as a Siena College VISTA Leader, mentoring a team of VISTAs, coordinating professional development opportunities, measuring the impact of the VISTA team, and establishing local and national connections with VISTAs across the country. Now, she is a Coordinator of ACE with a focus on managing the Siena AmeriCorps VISTA Fellows Program.
