Cardi, a queer, cisgender woman, was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. She graduated from The University of Texas with a degree in mathematics and religious studies. Cardi moved to Boulder with the intention to teach math. In January 2017, she attended an Out Boulder County volunteer training and it changed her life. It was through volunteering for OBC that Cardi found her passion; working with LGBTQ+ youth and supporting her community.
Over the span of six months Cardi has donated 144 hours of her time to support OBC and OBC Youth programming. Cardi enjoys spending Tuesday and Thursday evenings co-facilitating Queer and Trans youth groups in Boulder and Longmont. She also supports Queer Creative on the second Tuesday of the month for their Young Adult Cooking Class. From start to finish, Cardi volunteered in the youth and family section of both Longmont Pride and Boulder's Pridefest. Cardi is excited to continue her work supporting queer and trans youth and cannot wait to see what is in store for 2018!
