Maileen Mamaradlo (she/hers/siya) is the Program Coordinator II for the Asian American ECC Campaign (Everyone Counts Campaign). It is called H.O.P.E (Healing from Our Pasts and Expectations) to identify the root causes of Asian American stigma towards mental health. Her lived mental health experiences as a child of Asian immigrants shaped a lot into the person she is today.
Before working at PEERS, Maileen was highly involved at San Jose State University where she obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Public Health and a minor in Atypical Child Studies. Her favorite jobs and leadership experiences as a student were in non-profits like Braven, San Jose State Associated Students In Solidarity Network, and Asian Pacific American Leadership Institute (APALI) . Her involvement in college during the pandemic sparked her passions in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), social justice, and mental health outreach. Those values and previous work experiences led her to PEERS and her current position at the organization.
Outside of work, you can find Maileen going to concerts and making playlists on Spotify. She listens to thousands of different artists every year. She likes to collect earrings from women of color businesses. If anyone asks her to get boba, she will usually say yes!
