Sharon Valencia

Sharon joined Felicity House in 2014 after serving as the Program Associate at the Simons Foundation, an affiliated organization with a mission to advance the frontiers of research in mathematics, autism and basic sciences. One of Sharon’s main projects at the Simons Foundation was to establish a pilot group for adult women with autism, which later helped shape many of the current programs at Felicity House. Previously, Sharon worked as the Program Director of a nonprofit started by the Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, which helped foster the professional development of emerging artists. Sharon has a BA in Communications and Art History from Rutgers University and an MA in Design from Parsons/The New School for Design.

Sharon is happiest hanging out with her two dachshunds. She loves to read, eat pizza, bake, and build terrariums.
