Thalia Becerril

Operations Manager


I was born and raised in Sonoma, California. I am a first-generation college graduate, bicultural, and bilingual. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in public health with a concentration in health promotion and health education. I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, and doing strength training and high-intensity interval training in my spare time!

Roles at Quest Forward Academy

As the school’s Operations Manager, I oversee the day-to-day operations at the school, providing clerical, administrative, and office support to the Director. I also assist with building manager responsibilities for the site as well as support additional staff and general projects.

Why I Chose to Work Here

I have been at Quest Forward Academy since February of the Academy’s first academic year (2017-2018). I value Quest Forward Academy’s innovative project-based curriculum as I have always been a hands-on learner myself. I feel fortunate to be a part of a school that allows each student to express themselves and learn in their own way.
