Giselle Garcia is an intern with the Strategic Partnerships team at Energy Foundation. She assists with various aspects of communications and grantee and donor engagement, research, writing, photo editing, website maintenance, and branding and reputation management, and supports Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.
Giselle spent the last two summers working for City of Palo Alto summer camps. In 2019 she was at the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo as an Assistant Director, and facilitated extracurricular activities for elementary and middle school students. She had such a great time working with kids that in 2020, she interned at the Palo Alto Art Center. Following COVID-19 safety guidelines, she helped lead socially-distant ceramics and art-making classes and hosted online Zoom classes. Most recently, Giselle was a journalist at a local news organization, East Palo Alto Today. She researched policies and composed reports on city council meetings, and contacted local government officials to obtain information.
