Marisol is the proud parent of a childhood brain cancer survivor who has lived with lifelong disabilities. She worked closely with her daughter for over two decades to ensure that there were no gaps in her medical care or her education and, as a result, her daughter is a long-term survivor and student in college double majoring in Psychology and Spanish. Marisol chose to live in San Ramon because it provided a safe community for her daughter and plenty of open space for her to enjoy the outdoors. Marisol is dedicated to providing San Ramon residents with an equally rewarding and inclusionary quality of life.
