Daisy Ortiz

Data & Enrollment Specialist, Program Coordinator

Daisy Ortiz, Program Specialist and Program Coordinator for the Greater Los Angeles Region, joined Read to a Child August 2019. Born and raised in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles, Daisy is a graduate of LAUSD, where she works today to create opportunities for students to learn, be inspired, and thrive. Deeply committed to the mission of Read to a Child, she has extensive experience working with students in the communities we serve in downtown Los Angeles and has been employed with LAUSD in the LA’s BEST Afterschool Program since 2013. Daisy chooses to work with students in the elementary school setting because she sees herself in them, having grown up under similar conditions. She helps open doors for students, as she wishes someone had done for her at their age. Working with students and their families at Read to a Child’s partner schools is very rewarding for Daisy because she knows they truly appreciate the work that she, colleagues, and volunteers do through our Read Aloud Mentoring Program.
