Joselin Padron-Rasines

Joselin is a consultant on the Effective Organizations and Investments team and supports foundations, state and local education agencies and nonprofits to design organizations and implement structures and processes centered on coherence and equity. Joselin previously worked with Education First as an Analyst and most recently launched and implemented an inaugural community school model at a K-8 public school in Broward County serving more than 1,300 students.

Having immigrated to the United States as a child, Joselin has experienced how having access to a quality education can lead to a better future. Her immigrant experience—as well as her time lobbying for tuition equity for undocumented students and serving as the first Latina Student Body President at the University of Florida—made her aware of the political, social and institutional challenges that many students face in reaching their potential. Joselin brings to her work a passion for combating educational barriers for students and ensuring that educational leaders have the tools and resources for coherence-building.

Joselin earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Studies in Latin American and the Caribbean from the University of Florida and received a Master in Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University. She lives in south Florida where you can find her enjoying time at the beach, finding the best sweets to eat and spending time with her dog, Jai.
