Dr. Yessica Diaz Roman - Estrella

Dr. Yessica Diaz Roman has been a MANA member since 2011! She is a former Board Member, Hermanitas Mentor, and is currently the Chair for the Health Committee.

As a former scholarship recipient for MANA National in Washington D.C, Yessica was immediately drawn to MANA de San Diego. She then became a member because MANA’s mission directly aligns with her love for, “education, leadership development, and empowerment of women.”

Through her work with MANA, Yessica says, “I have met amazing and influential people who inspire me every day to work hard and who I now call Hermanas for life.”

MANA’s mission, membership, and innovative opportunities, are some of the reasons why Yessica is inspired to continue her work with MANA. She talks about her love for the work being done and feels proud to be a part of an organization that focuses on health, mental health, and well- being.

Most people do not know that Yessica’s middle name is Maria. Her father is the only person who uses her middle name when they talk on the phone.

Yessica Is a MANA Estrella!
