In 2016 she was named on the Forbes’ 30 Under 30 Education list and is currently on the leadership council for South Bronx Rising Together, and a board member at New York City Employment & Training Coalition.

Ms. Rodriguez co-founded The Knowledge House (TKH) in 2014 to close the gaps in the education-to--employment pipeline by leading digital skills training in coding and design for underserved young people in the Bronx.

TKH aims to lift entire communities out of poverty by creating a pipeline of talented and capable workers equipped with the technology and skills that provide economic opportunity, living wages, and career mobility.

Previously, Ms. Rodriguez coordinated STEM after-school programs at Braven and was the Bronx Field Director for Reshma Saujani's 2013 campaign for New York City Public Advocate. In 2011, she joined Students for Education Reform (SFER) as the National Program Director, organizing and coaching college students in 35 states to advocate for education reform. Prior to SFER, Ms. Rodriguez worked in the public-school system, teaching and designing programs.

Ms. Rodriguez has received numerous awards and recognitions including: 92 Y Extraordinary Women “Rising Star,” NYC Celebrates Women “22 Women of Color Entrepreneurs for 2022,” 2022 Crain’s Notable Black Leaders & Executives, 2021 Ghetto Film School Honoree, TED 2020 Emerging Innovator, 2016 Forbes Magazine’s 30 Under 30 and a founding Datanaut at NASA, an Aspen Institute Fellow. A proud native of New York City, she formerly served on Mayor De Blasio’s NY Workforce Recovery Strategy Group and contributed to elaborating a blueprint, Recovery For All A Vision for New York City's Equitable Economic Recovery, to lift the city out of the economic crisis caused by the pandemic.

Ms. Rodriguez and her fiancé proudly reside in the Bronx, NY.
