Position
Marquette Trinity Fellow / Literacy Services of Wisconsin, Trinity Fellow / Capacity Development Manager

Native Milwaukeean, Riverwesterner, and Rufus King alum, Edwin works toward connecting underrepresented populations to private and government sectors to find common ground and solutions to social issues. Edwin graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in Community-Based Organizations Policy & Leadership. Edwin then continued pursuing his community work interest as a two-time AmeriCorps Public Ally down in Central Florida, working for The Mustard Seed of Central Florida as a volunteer coordinator and the Fern Creek Elementary School as a community and mentor coordinator.

After successful completion of those two terms, Edwin came back to Milwaukee to pursue an interest in government and served as a Legislative Assistant to then-Common Council President and current Alderman Michael Murphy, working on constituent & neighborhood relations and policy research. Currently, Edwin is studying to earn his MBA from Marquette University under the Trinity Fellowship program, a graduate fellowship program geared toward developing urban leaders with an emphasis on social and economic justice. When Edwin isn’t focused on his studies, you can find him testing new recipes, playing pinball at a local arcade, painting, enjoying concerts, and looking for Milwaukee’s next big restaurant.
