Felicia Gonzalez is the proud parent of two boys in the Los Al Unified School District. Felicia joined the LAEF Board of Directors because she has been a strong advocate and supporter of LAEF for many years, since her eldest son started taking after-school classes in kindergarten. She has always believed that the quality of the LAEF classes and variety of subjects, combined with the high caliber of the teachers, have helped her children to develop more of a love for science, STEAM and other fun and enriching subjects such as Jiu Jitsu and Spanish.
Felicia is a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones. Prior to becoming a Financial Advisor, Felicia spent over 15 years in retail marketing, brand management, and franchise marketing in the restaurant and consumer packaged goods industries. She feels strongly about education and learning as evidenced by her undergraduate degree in marketing from Whittier College and her Masters degree in Communication Management from San Jose State.
Felicia has served on the board of the Okizu Foundation’s Art Inspiring Hope and has held multiple chair positions at Hopkinson Elementary including Carnival Chair, Box Tops, and as Communications Secretary on the PTA Board.
Felicia is happily married to her college sweetheart, Robert Gonzalez, and lives in Seal Beach with their two sons. She hopes to be able to help promote LAEF and all of the outstanding things LAEF does for the LAUSD students, families and schools.
