Raised in California’s Central Valley, Navreet’s firsthand experiences taught her the importance of centering community voices in regional decision making, in order to create equitable change. Following her interest in public policy, she pursued her education at the University of California, Davis studying Political Science.
With a broad academic focus, Navreet’s undergraduate career focused on pursuing opportunities which aligned with her passions for climate action, regional development, and policy implementation. She served as intern for California Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry’s office where she provided direct constituency support, a Bradshaw Scholar with the UC Davis Center for Regional Change, an intern with CivicWell supporting CivicSpark operations, and Chairperson for the ASUCD Academic Affairs Commission where she led student advocacy efforts during remote learning, and more.
Currently, Navreet is a Project Associate at Valley Vision, a nonprofit organization supporting the Greater Sacramento region and member organization of California Forward’s California Stewardship Network. At Valley Vision, Navreet supports the Broadband and Digital Equity impact area, connecting the region through providing support for local governments on strategic planning and broadband infrastructure development, along with connecting community organizations to digital literacy skills and opportunities.
