Board Member Bio
Barbara Hernandez was born and raised in Aurora, Illinois. She graduated from East Aurora High school in 2010, Waubonsee Community College in 2012 and from Aurora University in 2014. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a minor in Spanish. Barbara is the first in her family to attend college. She has been actively involved in the community. Barbara started her passion for politics when she interned in the office of State Representative Linda Chapa LaVia. Thanks to the help of her family, friends and mentor, Linda, she has been more motivated than ever to accomplish her goals and dreams of one day becoming a public servant and helping her community. At the age of 19, Barbara was elected precinct committee member for Ward 3 Precinct 5. On March of 2014 she was appointed to two commissions—one in Aurora Township and the second in the City of Aurora. In the summer of 2016, Barbara became a member of the Board of Directors for the YWCA Aurora.
