Frances Lepe graduated from California State University, Los Angeles in the fall of 2015 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. She chose to study gender in the diversity of human experience as her upper division theme which focused on the representations of sex and gender specific to the multitude of cultures and societies making up the human experience, both historically and today. Over the summer of 2014, Frances got involved with CLRJ through their non-profit management internship program in which she assisted the Associate Director with their annual fundraiser. She joined their staff as the Finance and Development Associate in the spring of 2015. In her new role, she is responsible for the daily financial operations of the organization and is critical in supporting the organization’s development efforts and goals toward long-term sustainability. Although she may not have a direct hands-on role in the RJ movement, she feels honored to be a part of such a dedicated organization. Frances is an avid Dodgers fan, who loves classic rock music, with an unhealthy obsession for $1 jewelry found at the Santee Alleys in Downtown L.A.
