Tristan Williams

Development Associate

She/Her

Tristan is originally from Louisville, Kentucky. A violist and vocalist by training, she earned her undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University, where she studied Viola Performance and African American & Diaspora Studies.

Tristan relocated to the Bay Area in 2018 and since then has worked with several nonprofits throughout the East Bay and San Francisco centered around young people’s leadership and music education.

She believes whole-heartedly in the power of artistic and cultural engagement as catalysts for social change—that’s what’s drawn her to put down roots in historic Oakland, what inspired her work as a music educator, and what now drives her in her role as Development Associate with CURYJ.
