Capri Downs joins the City of Salinas as the AmeriCorps VISTA Healthy Lifestyles Coordinator. Capri graduated from Cal State Dominguez Hills with a B.A. in Biology Anthropology in hopes to pursue a career in community health. Her goal is to enhance/create more green spaces and increase access to affordable and nutritional foods in low-income communities. She believes everyone should have access to adequate places to enjoy the outdoors and have different grocery markets that cater to all eating habits close to home. "I am looking forward to serving the Alisal neighborhoods and developing my skills in public health," Capri shares.

As the Healthy Lifestyles Coordinator, Capri will focus on evaluating and strengthening health care and nutrition focused speaker series at Alisal libraries and community
centers, connecting residents with appropriate healthcare and nutrition resources, and seek Nexus opportunities for park projects to fulfill both the Parks, Rec & Libraries Master Plan and the Alisal Vibrancy Plan.
