In 2016, Carolina Rodriguez-Adjunta joined the local nonprofit Climate Action Campaign as the deputy director of operations and programs, where she works relentlessly to stop climate change. Before joining Climate Action Campaign, Carolina worked in the biotech industry as an engineer and spent her free time volunteering her bilingual skills to political campaigns in San Diego’s South Bay.
Carolina transitioned from the biotech sector to nonprofit to align herself closer to her vision of a sustainable and equitable future. Carolina continues to integrate her enthusiasm for STEM into her fight for climate justice, bringing a unique voice to the local political landscape. She offers her multicultural worldview and adaptive skill set to spur political progress and political engagement in San Diego.
Carolina celebrates riding bikes, neurodiversity, women in STEM, and the great healing power of the outdoors. She dreams of a clean and equitable San Diego sprinkled with urban gardens and mobilized by protected bike lanes and mass transit.
