Cynthia Villamizar

Member, Cookies Social Impact

The Cookies Social Impact team works hand-in-hand with national organizations and local partners to create opportunities for workforce development and entrepreneurship among the communities most impacted by the War on Drugs. Most recently, the flagship program Cookies U has brought free cannabis supply chain education to students in Los Angeles and on the Cookies campus in Humboldt California. Other program initiatives include industry education, equity business support, and record expungement.

Cynthia serves as a member of the Cookies Social Impact team. After spending her early professional career working at Google in the U.S and Latin America, Cynthia decided to pursue her dreams of building inclusive community programs while sharing the stories of fellow builders within the cannabis community. Cynthia graduated from Vanderbilt University and lives in San Francisco, California.
