The Santa Barbara Education Foundation recently elected Bukola Ishola to its Board of Directors. Being a child of Nigerian immigrants, Ishola has been inspired to develop a passion for fighting for equity in education and against the oppression of marginalized groups.
Ishola is a long-time resident of Santa Barbara; she remained in the area after receiving bachelor of arts degrees in political science and Black studies from UCSB.
Ishola is a benefits consultant at OneDigital Health, where she educates her clients about nuances in the health insurance industry to further encourage knowledgeable forms of consumerism for her patrons.
