Mary Biasotti, Grants Manager for Students Rising Above, joined Students Rising Above in January 2020. Having a passion for workforce development, Mary has served in various leadership and program development positions for Richmond Main Street, San Pablo Economic Development Corporation, and International Rescue Committee’s Vision Project, GRID Alternatives-Bay Area and Harbor House Ministries. She has devoted herself to resource development so that those who lack access to the kind of opportunities she had can break down those barriers and thrive as contributors in their communities.
Mary holds a degree in Bioresource Sciences from UC Berkeley, a certificate for (Social) Entrepreneurship, and was a 1997 San Francisco Foundation Koshland Fellow. She lives in El Sobrante, CA with her husband, teenage daughter, dog and three cats. Two of their children have, or are soon, graduating from college.
