Paris TerrellRegional Supervisor

    Paris Terrell is an Oakland native with over 20 years of experience in the non-profit sector, specifically supporting communities of Alameda County. She has a true passion for social equity and ensuring that all people are seen and heard regardless of economic stature.

    Prior to working at Empowered Aging, Paris was a Facilities Superintendent for a pilot program spearheaded by FEMA through the County of Napa. The agency’s mission was to ensure the health and safety of at-risk communities during Covid, with a focus of providing support and resources to those who struggle with mental health and addiction. She also worked at Kaiser Permanente for 6 years where she was responsible for providing personalized nutrition plans and managing dietary restrictions for patients with severe health issues.

    After caring for her ailing grandfather, Paris felt drawn to begin advocacy work for the elderly and underserved populations in her community, so she applied for a position on the Empowered Aging team. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, networking, and being a light in people’s lives.
