Yolanda Lazo
Military & Veterans Fellow


Yolanda is currently serving as the MilVet fellow at Service Year Alliance with a fellowship through the Mission Continues. Yolanda is a first generation immigrant from El Salvador who grew up in the foster care system. As a self taught artist, she works on commissioned pieces and whatever she feels like painting. Immediately after high school Yolanda attended a graphic design trade certificate program.

She enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the logistics field at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, CA, as well as one overseas deployment in 2006 to Al-Taqaddum Airbase in Habbaniyah Iraq. Afterwards, Yolanda worked at the USAID Outreach and Development Department as a program specialist and configuration management specialist.

She loves spending time with her "lowrider pitbull" who is actually a pit bull/basset hound mix.
