Sandra Celedon

President & Chief Executive Officer

Sandra Celedon serves as President and CEO of Fresno Building Healthy Communities. She is responsible for guiding and supporting multi-sector, diverse stakeholder collaborations to foster and encourage thriving communities where all children and families can live healthy, safe, and productive lives. She adheres to public health principles, which recognize that all people must have access to the resources necessary for health and that people and their physical environment are interdependent; when one is damaged, it will have an adverse effect on the other. Therefore, she dedicates herself to building healthy communities. Sandra earned a Bachelor of Science Community Health degree from California State University, Fresno, and a Master of Science Public Health degree from San Jose State University.

In 2020, she was elected as the vice-chair for the Fresno Commission on Police Reform—a 37-member commission comprising residents, advocates, and stakeholders assigned to develop recommendations to institute reform within the Fresno Police Department. At the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, she co-developed the COVID-19 Equity Project, a collaborative effort that included over 17 community-based organizations and more than 100 community health workers that provided prevention education, vaccinations, and resources to over 25,000 vulnerable community residents in Fresno County. With her support, the project was replicated in two other counties. In 2022, she joined the Public Policy Institute of California and the Catalyst California board of directors.

In her free time, she enjoys watching documentaries and spending time with her partner Maurice, their son Ernesto, and dog Lola.
