After a traumatic brain injury that resulted in permanent cognitive disabilities in 2015, Doris decided to leave toxic nonprofit spaces. After nine years of working in community health education, youth development, and sexual and reproductive health, Doris entered a new chapter in her life; working to create a world in which disabilities are normalized, race and gender wage gaps are non-existent, and women of color thrive, and live fulfilling lives. To create this world, Doris co-founded The MC, a space for women of color to see their true self and value, work as a collective for the common good, and develop supportive, professional, and lasting relationships. Doris grew up in Santa Ana, California, and went on to receive a bachelor’s in International Development with a focus on Latin America and the Middle East from UCLA in 2008.
