Jasmine Vassar, California native, is wellness educator, and facilitator driven by her mission for spiritual activism and deep social transformation. Her love for food and community, brought her to food justice work in Bayview Hunter’s point. There, she worked alongside residents to address the lack of access to health affordable foods. Wanting to further develop healing practices for larger populations, she then went on to get her Master’s in public health with an emphasis on social justice. She believes in the healing powers of community voice for social transformation. When she’s not sitting with her ancestors in the mountains of Peru, she enjoys home life within the Bay Area.
