2024 Fellow: Casandra Juarez

Casandra Juarez Ambriz has lived in Idaho her entire life, born in Southern Idaho where her parents relocated from Michoacan Mexico. She now resides in Canyon County. She is bilingual, in Spanish and English, a licensed loan officer, loan officer assistant, and training specialist with Premier Mortgage Resources. Her background originated in the banking industry and she has been a part of the financial industry for 7+ years. 

Casandra gained interest in the fellowship after achieving homeownership as a young adult and realizing the importance of representation as a first-generation immigrant. In addition, she has gained interest in learning how boards affect our community directly. As a Latina, she has a passion to learn and spread the knowledge wealth the fellowship will have to offer to her community. 

Casandra enjoys cooking, listening to podcasts, painting, traveling, doing home projects, and most importantly loves spending time with family and friends.
