Sameena Ishaq

I am the warrior mom of two kids and my younger son has a rare disease and has special health care needs. In addition to working at FRN, I co-run the Union City Special Needs Library Playgroups. I have a passion for arts and crafts; yet when I draw a snake it looks like a snail! I enjoy working with families and helping them advocate for services.

Rocio Peralta

I joined FRN after being a parent leader. The other staff tease me and say that they always know when I am working because they smell coffee and popcorn – but I like coffee and popcorn.

April Key-Lee

I am a parent of two young boys who love to create marble run contraptions or play puzzle games. In my free time, I love to bake, garden, do crafting projects, or watch anime and Asian TV shows.

Specialty: Dari, Farsi
I think a touch humor is like a bit of spice into your food. I was born in Afghanistan, raised in Germany, living in the East Bay and not sure where I’ll end up. I love traveling and working with multicultural people.

Position: Program Manager
I love NBA basketball. My family and friends often have to remind me that I am neither a player nor a coach, but this doesn’t stop me from sharing my strategic plays anyway.
