This Valentine’s Day, Frontida wants to share our love with our two co-executive directors—Lauren Yen and Vivianna Camarillo-Guenther. Yen and Camarillo-Guenther have been instrumental in the leadership of our team’s operations and the expansion of vital medical recordkeeping tools to vulnerable communities in Ukraine, Central America, and Africa.

Yen is also the co-founder of Torch, a nonprofit focused on providing low-cost, low-tech solutions to increase comfort in tents and makeshift structures for the homeless in Los Angeles.
In the past, she conducted medical and public health research at the Los Angeles City Health Commission, Schaeffer Center for Health Policy and Economics, USC Keck School of Medicine, and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. Moreover, the Los Angeles Business Journal spotlighted Yen in its “20 in their 20s” List of Aspiring Entrepreneurs. She will be attending medical school in the Fall of 2023
