Ysa has been dedicated to serving the greater community throughout her life and was named a Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero of Tomorrow in 2018 for her partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Greater Brandon and Feeding Tampa Bay.

“I’ve always been passionate about helping the people of Tampa Bay, and I began finding organization’s that were just as passionate and could be a catalyst for change in the community. Synapse believes that everyone can be an innovator and provides people from all backgrounds the opportunity to grow and thrive in the tech space. I’m blown away by the magnitude of the summit and just how many executives, founders, and startups are part of the Synapse network – and I’m honored to be able to have the opportunity to support and help represent one of the nation’s fastest-growing tech hubs – the amazing Tampa Bay.”

We’re excited to celebrate our volunteers, the work that they do, and impact they make. It is important to take a moment to recognize the incredible value that volunteers bring to our community here at Synapse.
