Lam Nguyen - Silicon Valley
Lam's early career was spent as a project manager in tech. Having had a brief stint in the golf world, the call of public service eventually led him to community organizing, activism, and advocacy. His momentum in service eventually led him to the California State Senate where he worked as a District Representative and Communications Advisor for Senator Jim Beall. He is currently Deputy Chief of Staff for Councilmember David Cohen in San Jose. Being the child of refugees has given Lam a unique and practical perspective. He hopes that this perspective, coupled with his education in psychology and journalism, will help him serve public service.
