Meet The Director in training

alwebHello Rainbow Rising Families, my name is Alicia Mendizabal and I am so happy to start my new journey as your Director in Training at Rainbow Rising Bonita Canyon. I have been a part of Rainbow Rising for 7 years now and I am grateful for all of the knowledge and experience I have gained while working here. I currently have an A.A. in Sociology from IVC and will be going back to school to receive my B.A. I enjoy teaching the kids exciting subjects such as art, science, and culture. My goal at Rainbow Rising is to provide an environment where children are safe, happy and build lasting relationships. I look forward to getting to know all my families and providing them with the best service. I enjoy spending my spare time with my family and my precious baby girls, Alexi and Athena.

Meet The Assistant Director in training

Hello Rainbow Rising families!
I am so thrilled to start this new journey as Bonita Canyon’s Assistant Director. I recently graduated from UC Irvine with BAs in Education Sciences and Psychology and Social Behavior. I am passionate about creating a fun, safe and educational environment where kids can be their best. It has been an honor to get to be a part of the lives of so many children and their families. When I’m not at Rainbow Rising, I love listening to live music, watching movies and discovering new restaurants!
