Sasha Pellerin, HACIA, Project Director

Sasha Pellerin, our HACIA: Toward the University Project Director, oversees the implementation of our multi-faceted strategy in family engagement and college readiness. Sasha works directly with our Executive Director and Leadership Development Director to ensure staff is trained in the fidelity of the HACIA model, while managing the HACIA team and ensuring accountability, program delivery and quality control in all levels of work.

Sasha has a BA in Political Science and Spanish from the University of New Mexico. Before joining Southwest Creations, Sasha worked as the After School Program Coordinator at South Valley Academy High School.

Since working for Southwest Creations, my views of organizing and “work” have changed. I have learned that being a mother and professional is possible, and the balance between a business life and real life are attainable if an organization is willing to sacrifice for its employees.
