Izack Tenorio is well-suited to navigate the complex world of government affairs. With a community-focused approach and a unique and versatile skillset, he seeks to better the state.

At Strategies 360, Tenorio works in various policy areas, including health care, gun violence reform, social innovation, rural issues and democracy reform. He says he enjoys working on the policy and legislation that helps drive Nevada forward. He also credits some of his success to his lived experiences and his mother for inspiring him to make the world a better place.

“I am the proudest of graduating with my doctorate because my parents only have an elementary school education. My dad was illiterate until later in his life. It’s why my name is spelled ‘Izack’ instead of the traditional spelling ‘Isaac.’ Every time I see my full name with ‘Dr.’ in front of it—Dr. Izack Tenorio—it’s a reminder of my American dream,” he said.

Always advocating for others, Tenorio is also active within the community. He serves on the board of the Nevada chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and as the chair of its Public Policy Committee. He is also involved with the Southern Nevada Children Mental Health Coalition, volunteers as a CCSD Peer Mentor and participates in Nevada Reading Week at schools with a high English Language Learner (ELL) population.
