My name is Julio Santana, and I am a Student and Community Advocate with Communities In Schools of Central Washington. The pursuit of my educational expedition led me to highs as an accomplished IT Technician and Systems Administrator. However, I made the drastic decision to change career paths and use my experience as a first-generation college student to give back to the community that saw me overcome countless obstacles and accomplish my dreams. I look forward to providing my community with the necessary resources to thrive. 

I am a proud father of a beautiful 2-year-old girl and husband of an incredible woman who also proudly serves her community. I have 5 dogs (please don’t ask if I want one, because I will say yes and get in trouble with the Mrs.) I am a diehard Los Angeles Lakers and Chargers fan, have been since 1995. My favorite thing in the world is traveling with my family.
