Betty Gonzalez comes to Agile Learning Labs from a long history of herding cats, first as a district manager for Jean Nicole Petries in the fast-paced retail industry, and later in the construction business, where she helped build a 50-employee company from the ground up (we’re hoping she can do the same for us!).
Uniquely talented in many areas, including finance and logistics, Betty brings a consummate sincerity and joy to every part of her work. She also has a positive energy and lovely smile that you won’t soon forget.
Nick was Agile Learning Labs’ first summer intern, in the summer of 2018. It went so well that we’ve kept him. Nick’s experience includes working on political campaigns and being the assistant project manager for a construction company. As of 2023 he’s attending law school at UC Law SF (Hastings).
