Delivery Experience

Isabella is currently working on the Local Infrastructure Project, an initiative which aims to empower small- and mid-sized US cities to access federal infrastructure grants. She is passionate about the project’s equity focus, as it directs federal funds to the cities who need them most yet have the least capacity for navigating complex federal applications.

Other Experience

Prior to joining DA, Isabella founded a gratuitous prep course for public school students in Brazil. The course has been live since 2014, and has enabled several students from less privileged backgrounds to access quality higher education. She also produced a documentary of a mayor’s political campaign in 2016, which fostered debates around youth participation in politics and how to reduce corruption in small municipalities in Brazil.
