Jana K. Iwasaki
Jana currently serves as the Office Coordinator for San Diego Pride. Having recently relocated to San Diego from Seattle with her partner, Jana is definitely excited to embrace some more vitamin-D, beach days and great food.
In 2019, Jana graduated from Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in Communications with a double-minor in Event Planning and Social Justice & Education. Prior to joining San Diego Pride, Jana worked with Puget Sound Educational Service District as part of their ‘Student Support Services’ team. During this time, she is proud to have supported programs that specialized in suicide prevention, gender-based violence, ELL family support, juvenile justice, culturally-competent youth education, equitable healthcare resources and drug prevention/intervention – always leading with an equity-based approach.
Outside of work, Jana enjoys going to all kinds of music events, trying new bars and restaurants and traveling to new places with her loved ones. She also plays ‘mom’ to a little black cat named “Disco” who has been her partner in crime since 2017.
