William is a gap year student and incoming freshman at Georgetown University, with plans to major in Political Economy. Before joining the Mental Health Colorado team in early 2021, William worked on Mike Johnston’s and Jared Polis’ gubernatorial campaigns, former US Attorney John Walsh’s bid for Senate, and most recently served as Deputy Campaign Manager for Rep. David Ortiz — the newly elected representative for Colorado State House District 38. These experiences taught William the importance of grassroots organization in fostering lasting, meaningful change within one’s community, as well as the significance of youth voices in modern political discourse.
Having had his own experiences with the mental healthcare system and seen the impact that effective care can have on individuals suffering from mental health conditions, William understands how imperative affordable, attainable, and destigmatized services are. As part of the Mental Health Colorado family, William is excited to get to work doing whatever he can to make a difference.
William grew up in Littleton, Colorado. In his downtime, he enjoys reading, jazz piano, and spending time with his family.
