Alexandria School Board Member
A native of Richmond, VA, Jacinta Greene is a proud graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University. Born into a family of educators, Jacinta learned early and firsthand the importance of a great education and the doors it can open for the future. Jacinta moved to Alexandria in 2002 and quickly became involved in community activism by serving as Vice President of the Alexandria Young Democrats and for 5 years served as Chair of Volunteer Coordination for the Alexandria Democratic Committee.
Jacinta spent 10 years in Corporate America before venturing out on her own as an independent marketing consultant and meeting planner. Her main passion centers around advocacy for disadvantaged women, children and civil rights for all. This passion led her to the Alexandria Commission for Women where she has served as a commissioner and First Vice Chair for 10 years. Jacinta also serves on the board for the Twelve Days of Christmas, Inc.-DC Chapter, a nonprofit organization that raises money for disadvantaged children in the DC Metro area. Other volunteer activities include serving as coordinator for the Ruby Tucker Readers organization which teaches a love for reading and literacy to underserved children in Alexandria.
In 2018 Jacinta was elected to the Alexandria City School Board and takes pride in advocating for a quality and equitable education for all children in her beloved Alexandria, VA. The quote that Jacinta centers her life around is” A hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”
