Prior to joining PK, Clarissa completed a public policy fellowship with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute where she completed placements at the Department of State and the Office of Congressman Charles A. Gonzalez.
She is passionate about the ways in which public policy impacts underrepresented communities and hopes to help build valuable coalitions to inform people of their digital rights. Clarissa's interest in these issues stem from her time with the Guadalupe Street Coffee Shop in San Antonio Texas which provided free internet and computer access to the surrounding community. Clarissa graduated with a Bachelors degree in Political Science from St. Marys University in her hometown of San Antonio Texas.
