My name is Vanessa Flores. I am part of a cooperative called Semillas Wellness located in Southeast Los Angeles. I graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.S. in Health Education with an emphasis in Holistic Health. I hope to continue providing preventative, alternative healing methods to the Southeast LA area through a cooperative model.

Certified in Level I, Cooperative Leadership Certification Program (2019)

“I thoroughly enjoyed taking this course with Cecile and my peers from around the country. It was very fascinating to be able to see how implementing the Collab tools can have such great impact and benefits to our team.

The greatest tool I got from taking this course is that our team must get organized in order to create efficiency. And Collab provides these tools to be implemented so seamlessly.

I am also grateful to have been able to hear about how this course was benefiting other teams in my cohort and how they were experiencing Collab. This helped me look into my own team and make adjustments as the course went on. I am grateful for this course and for the clarity Cecile has brought to our team.”
