Raven Sia joined Stepping Stones Board of Directors in 2019. She began her career as a therapist with an organization in Los Angeles, Didi Hirsch Community Health. Later she was recruited to New York to work as a Social Therapist with developmentally delayed children for 2 years before pivoting her career into film and advertising post-production, an unlikely yet forecasting transition. Using her background education and experience, Raven Sia quickly ascended in the media world both in film projects and advertising projects transferring her unique skill set into the high-stakes corporate world, where she has spent the past 12 years. After recently working as an executive in Chicago, IL, she made the decision to return back to her hometown in the Bay Area to focus on family and mission driven work.
She is a lifelong outdoor enthusiast, a mother, and an advocate for the environment, wellness and mental health. In this second gilded age of technology, she strongly believes in balancing the rapid growth of those developments with a stronger efforts towards the work that Stepping Stones does- communication with heart, deep roots in community, multi-generational relationships and a reverence for the environment and the coming of age of youth. Raven Sia has a Master's in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Chicago School of Psychology in Westwood, CA and a Bachelor's in Sociology and Public Policy from UCLA.
