Jessie Ghangas

Grant Manager

I have recently entered in the Social Services realm, however, I have a compassionate personality from a young age. I hold a Bachelors in Business Administration with a Minor in Computer Science from San Francisco State University. I was born in India and raised in the United States which made me aware of the multicultural communities around me. I am fluent in four different languages. I have a business background starting with a small family owned business to expanding and managing various locations in different states and countries. Interacting with different people who come from various different cultures and backgrounds have taught me that not everyone has the same lifestyle, resources and guidance as the person next to them. I thrive on my extensive 15 years of  experience in communicating and interacting with people with different backgrounds. I currently hold a Grants Manager Position for a Non-Profit Agency that helps Women in Domestic Violence and also run a successful business.
