Tatiana was born in Medellin, Colombia, and migrated with her family to the United States, arriving in Central Falls, Rhode Island. Almost 20 years later, Tatiana still resides in Central Falls, on the same street where she grew up.
Tatiana has been serving as the Director of Enrichment Opportunities at the Central Falls School District for almost two years, working to cultivate community partnerships and secure out-of-school time programs for our students. For the past five years, she has stayed active in the city by combining her love of soccer and community to organize the Mundialito Soccer Tournament, which she founded to raise funds to provide non-traditional scholarships to Central Falls student-athletes. Tatiana is a member of the Central Falls Alumni Association and the City Planning Board, serving as Vice-Chair for the past two years. She also serves as the Treasurer of the Colombian American Cultural Society Board of Directors, and was recently elected Vice-Chair of the Central Falls Prevention Coalition for substance abuse awareness and prevention.
A 2008 graduate of Central Falls High School, Tatiana went on to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Rhode Island in 2012. She belongs to several leadership groups focused on developing and supporting future leaders, including New Leaders Council of RI, Latina Leadership Institute of RI, and Millennial RI.
Tatiana is a true Warrior and is looking forward to creating more opportunities for Central Falls’ youth to learn and be engaged, leveraging more resources for our community, and empowering our people.
