Faces of Saint Monica Preparatory - Alumni


Congratulations to Saint Monica alumna, Nathalie Rayes ’92, confirmed earlier this year as U.S. ambassador to Croatia. Rayes, who earned a bachelor’s in sociology and a master’s in public policy at UCLA, was most recently president and CEO of Latino Victory, an advocacy group working to increase Latino representation. In 2022, President Biden appointed her to the board of the United States Institute of Peace. She has also served in Los Angeles city government, including as deputy chief of staff to James Hahn, who was mayor at the time. 

Alejandra Campoverdi '97 and commencement speaker for the Class of 2023, published “First Gen: A Memoir” this year, an unflinching memoir about navigating social mobility as a first gen Latina. She is a nationally-recognized women’s health advocate, founder, producer and former Obama White House official. After Saint Monica, Campoverdi graduated cum laude from the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism at the University of Southern California. She went on to get her master’s in public policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and currently serves on the board of Harvard's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy. We are so proud of our alumni making waves beyond our Mariner home.
