Amani Ali is the Office Manager at ANV. She holds a BA in Psychology from Concordia University in Irvine and a Masters degree in Social Work from Cal State East Bay. She has always been interested in cooking and believes that eating fresh and healthy food is a right, and not a privilege. She felt that working at ANV was a good way to share this with other people.
Before ANV, Amani has devoted time to People’s Grocery, Cooking Matters, and GROW Oakland (A program of Beyond Emancipation). She also has 7 years of experience working with youth and young adults in Oakland at places such as East Oakland Community Playdate, Yellowhouse Playschool, Beyond Emancipation, and East Bay Agency for Children.
