Mithsy Hernandez, Outreach & Volunteer Coordinator

A Los Angeles native, Mithsy grew up with the hustle and bustle of the city. Despite the traffic and urban pollution, she often found herself biking to the beach or making her way to the nearest hiking trails. Her love for the great outdoors developed into a passion for environmental conservation and preservation. Her desire to pursue a career in the environmental field led Mithsy to graduate from the University of San Diego with a BA in Environmental Studies and minor in Sociology. During this time, she participated in research studies surveying local coastal ecology and geology, and interned with the City of San Diego Environmental Services Department. Her interest in environmental justice and public health encouraged her to work with her local communities toward creating an equitable and healthy environment.

Prior to joining LA Waterkeeper, Mithsy worked as the Administrative Assistant with Puget Soundkeeper Alliance in Seattle, Washington. She is excited to continue with the Waterkeeper family and protect the waterways of her native city.
