Program Specialist, Code for America
Zachary Antoyan is a proud Central Valley native, currently living in Fresno, and will soon be working on the GetCalFresh Team. Previously, he worked in the District Office of Assemblymember Joaquin Arambula, who represents the 31st Assembly District, which includes half of Fresno County. In that role, he acted as a liaison between the State of California and the residents, businesses, local municipalities, and organizations in the district. He's most excited about continuing to work with small, local government partners on ensuring they can continue to provide for their constituencies.
Zach takes advantage of Fresno's close proximity to Kings Canyon, Sequoia, and Yosemite National Parks as often as he can, which has been an important part of staying active during the pandemic while climbing gyms have closed and pick-up ultimate frisbee has waned. He's excited to meet everyone, and maintains an open invitation to whomever would like to visit Fresno or the parks!
