Andrea Pulido

Andrea Pulido is the Economic Empowerment Coordinator on the employment team and previously worked as a case manager for newly arrived refugees at HIAS PA. Andrea helps newcomers learn more about technology and finances in the US, focusing on increasing job opportunities and building financial savings.

Andrea is originally from Massachusetts, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Women/Gender/Sexualities Studies, with a main concentration in Reproductive Justice, and a minor in Political Science. She initially became interested in refugee issues while living in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a Rotary Youth Exchange Scholar. However, as a child of Filipino immigrants, Andrea has always been closely tied to the immigrant experience.

Prior to HIAS PA, Andrea conducted research on youths’ experience with sexual and reproductive rights in Manila on a Fulbright Research Grant, taught English in southern Spain, and worked in support services for incoming international students and truant students.
