Saya Miyoshi Muniz Reasonable Accommodation Coordinator, Office of Civil Rights - Department of Rehabilitation
Saya is originally from Tokyo, Japan. Currently she is working as a Statewide Reasonable Accommodation Coordinator at the Department of Rehabilitation. Prior to this, she worked in the Human Resources/EEO field both with private companies and the state for over 10 years.
She loves animals and volunteered at Sacramento SPCA (SSPCA) before becoming disabled. She now makes regular donations regularly to SSPCA, Hope for PAWS, and Best Friends Animal Society. “My service dog Brandy is from SSPCA and I appreciate what these nonprofit organizations do.”
Saya learned how inaccessible and uneducated people are about accessibility in Sacramento when she became disabled herself. She also saw how uneducated and ignorant she was previously. Saya joined the freedomtech advisory committee to share her experience and what she has learned with as many people as possible.
