HR & Administration Manager
Chantel (Chan) is the HR & Administrative Manager at TransForm. She is a part of the Operations team and her responsibilities include administrating benefits and working very closely with Operations Manager, Finance, and the Executive Assistant & Board Liaison to ensure daily operations run smoothly.
Chan comes to TransForm with many years of experience as an administrator in Operations and Human Resources from several social justice organizations. She was previously employed at The Center of Media Justice, Causa Justa::Just Cause, and Harm Reduction Therapy Center. It was there that she worked to implement systems to ensure the organization operated at a high level.
A Bay Area native, she has lived, biked & walked around Oakland for 9 years. She and her partner have created an urban farm in Deep East Oakland that is home to rabbits and goats. A strong proponent of food sovereignty and community building with people of color, their goal is to connect with other local farmers and neighbors to engage in ongoing goods and skill sharing. When not buzzing around the office, Chan can be found practicing her banjo, improving her bike building skills, or taking her goats for a hike around Oakland’s Knowland Park.
