Always inclusive, she offers a strong track record of listening to and embracing community members’ diverse views and life experiences.

The eldest of nine children from a Ventura County farm-working family, Martinez-Bravo was the first in her family to earn a college degree. She later achieved both a Master’s and Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology.

Michaela Perez is the granddaughter of farmworkers. Born and raised in the City of Oxnard, she is a lifelong advocate of the Oxnard community.

She has managed workforce development programs that offer skills training for students in STEM fields. Perez also developed broadband policy initiatives to increase digital access, training, and affordability for low-income families.
