Simone has spent the majority of her career working for and with the City & County she calls home. In her role as OCOFʼs Senior Analyst, she urges onwards the overarching goal of collective impact through project management, data analysis, and evaluation for equitable and institutional systems change. Before joining the OCOF team, she worked with the Human Services Agency in 2016 as a Senior Analyst and at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission from 2011-2016, ascending to sole Contract & Budget Analyst and overseeing highly visible formal contracts and complex operating budgets. Driven by her experiences in the public sector, Simone finds everyday inspiration in lending her analytic background to the Councilʼs mission so close to her heart.
