Joe Hernandez

Community Relations Manager, Premier Healthcare Services

Vice Chair

A Southern California native, UC Davis graduate, and passionate community leader, I first came to Sacramento to pursue a Master of Business Administration from Sacramento State University in 2013. During that time, up until my graduation, it was hard not to fall in love with Sacramento. The region was going through a revitalization which could be seen and felt all around. The increasing number of local restaurants, cool bars, street activations, outdoor concerts and movies, improved amenities and infrastructure created a unique and enticing welcome. I wanted to be involved. I wanted to give back. I wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself.

Metro EDGE was the perfect outlet to channel my new-found passion for Sacramento. I attained tremendous value in EDGE’s networking, professional development, philanthropic drive, empowerment, and access to leaders within the region. This ambitious immersion into the program, led to a seat on the Leadership Council in 2016. After three years of service, I am excited to be taking the role of program Vice Chair. I’m all about Sacramento and the thing I love most about our city is its ENERGY! We truly are in a renaissance. We’re a region that cares about its people and it's inspiring to see how much change one person can still make in Sacramento.

Professionally, I work as the Community Relations Manager for Premier Healthcare Services, an organization dedicated to serving families and clients of regional centers throughout California. I sit as Communications Chair for the Sacramento State Business Chapter Alumni Association and reside in the heart of Midtown. I am excited to be part of EDGE’s incredible 2019 leadership team and look forward to creating an impactful year for EDGE and its members as our program celebrates a decade of Engaging, Developing, Giving, and Empowering!
