Jenifer was born and raised in Lima, Peru, but migrated to the United States with her family in the early 2000s to pursue the “American Dream.” Graduating with a Science of Nursing degree and a minor in Education, Jenifer went on to work in the medical field for 10 years in Tulsa, OK, which served as a foundation for her ultimate purpose: helping the Latin community. In 2018, Jenifer joined the Language and Cultural Services Department in Tulsa Public Schools.
Today, Jenifer is the Lead Spanish Facilitator for New U where the team works intimately together to motivate diverse talent to actualize and reach the 2.0 version of themselves. In this role, Jenifer gets to leverage her 15-year tenure of being a Spanish and English interpreter, which gave her the necessary tools and experiences to effectively engage with non-English speaking families and other immigrant communities. One of her leading values revolves around equality and equity, as she is a firm believer that everyone should be treated the same despite their ethnic or racial background. Her biggest passion is to build inter-cultural bridges to provide equal opportunities for diverse communities.
Born and raised in Tulsa, OK, Bianca Alvarado started her career in the healthcare industry where she spent nearly a decade working in various fields, such as the pediatrics department and Planned Parenthood. New U became a vital ingredient for her transformative journey as it challenged her to get out of her bubble and push herself to past her limits. As one of NU’s Spanish Facilitators and a native Tulsan, Bianca is excited to share new pathways for her community and inspire others to reach the next version of themselves.
Although Bianca Alvarado was born in Tulsa, OK, she spent her early childhood years in Fresnillo, Zacatecas Mexico, where her family is originally from. But when she turned 6 years old, her family returned to Tulsa where the quiet city quickly became home. Moving from neighborhood to neighborhood, Bianca got the chance to live all over Tulsa before graduating high school with a Medical Assistant license. This led her to working in the medical field for 9 years, mainly in the pediatrics department from Planned Parenthood to Oklahoma State University (OSU). She is also the mother of two beautiful children.
In 2016, Bianca decided to take a leap of faith and pursue her passion in the beauty industry, so she returned to school to learn cosmetology. Today, she is a hair stylist specializing in color at Rock Paper Scissors, and continues to nurture her growth by staying on top of new trends and practices. As a native Tulsan, Bianca had the opportunity to see how Tulsa has grown throughout the years, and is excited to see the positive changes that could breed new opportunities. Upon joining New U, first as a participant and later as a Spanish Facilitator, Bianca was able to break out of her bubble, push past her own limits, and continue on the path she wants–and she wants to share that spark with others.
