Hi, my name is Haley Jacoby, granddaughter of Damacio Cortez, who is a member of Local 755. My grandparents adopted me at the age of 8 and have provided me with everything I have needed to succeed. I graduated from John F. Kennedy Senior Medical Magnet with Magna Cum Laude. I am very involved with my academics, extracurricular activities and community service work at Kaiser Permanente.

This fall, I plan to further my education at San Diego State University to receive my bachelor’s in nursing. I aim to pursue a doctorate in nursing to become a neonatal nurse practitioner. Thank you so much OPCMIA and Local 755 for this opportunity; I am very grateful.
