Founder and Principal Consultant, Sabrina Gomez Group LLC

Sabrina Gomez is a passionate entrepreneur with a background in the nonprofit and education sectors.

Sabrina is the Founder and Principal Consultant of the Sabrina Gomez Group, LLC, an education consulting firm with a strong commitment to advancing equity and improving educational and economic outcomes for Black and Latino youth. Prior, she served as Senior Director at ExpandED Schools where she led local and national initiatives that empowered upwards of 4,000 youth to achieve success in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Sabrina launched her career in education advocacy as a teacher in Buenos Aires, Argentina and the South Bronx, New York.

Sabrina is often found serving in a myriad of leadership roles in the community. She was part of the inaugural class of LEAD STEM, a national program for STEM Ecosystem members to impact meaningful change in their local communities and scale their work nationally. While in LEAD STEM, she led efforts to design work-based learning initiatives to increase postsecondary attainment and employment opportunities in high-growth, high-demand, fields for Black and Latino youth.

Sabrina is passionate about exposing youth to the unfamiliar. In this spirit, she volunteered as a conversational Spanish teacher and designed learning experiences for students at The LIFE School in Castleberry Hill to interact with culturally diverse people in their community. Sabrina is an avid traveler, art enthusiast, and to unwind, you will find her in a yoga studio or curled up with a good book.

A native of San Jose, California, Sabrina is the proud daughter of Mexican immigrants. She credits her career trajectory to being a part of her undocumented father's experience and exposure to her educator mother advocating for increased opportunities to help Latinos achieve greater gains in education. Sabrina holds a B.A. in History from the University of California, Los Angeles, a M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from City University in New York, Hunter College, and a M.A. in International Education Development from New York University.
