With a blind father in a family of migrants, highly skilled Isaac Davalos, AMI’s Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Central Regional Lead, is no stranger to facing challenges and working through them to better himself and others in the Los Angeles area.
First introduced to the medical field as he worked at the Braille Institute, Davalos knew he wanted to get more involved. As he was volunteering with the homeless population, he became an EMT and put his new skills to fast use. He then continued his mission of acquiring lifesaving skills and attended Verdugo Fire Academy in Los Angeles. Not only did Davalos graduate top of his class, he did so while volunteering for an organization that provided mentorship to at-risk youth.
Davalos excelled in the Fire Academy and received five academic, leadership, and service honors-the first to ever accomplish this. After working for two years as a reserve firefighter for the Alhambra Fire Department, he was able to combine his impressive skill sets and passion into a new career with AMI at their LA-based project management office in May 2020.
As Central Regional Lead of LAUSD, the largest public school system in California and the second-largest public school district in the United States, Davalos is an effective, empathetic leader in high demand. AMI has over 500 personnel on the ground and 60 teams who test on-campus students and staff once per week, conducting approximately 100,000 tests per week.
“Isaac Davalos has continued to exemplify what it means to be a true leader even while facing adversities. His strong moral values and commitment to AMI have taken this project to new heights, and we thank him for being such a remarkable individual,” shares Laura Colmenares, Ops Manager of LAUSD.
