Through my 14 years of working in the social service field, I have extensive experience providing culturally sensitive direct services in residential, home, and community setting to children, youth, adults, and their families. I obtained my bachelor's degree in Psychology from San Diego State University in 2008, my master's degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California in 2014, and completed my LCSW in 2018.
My experience includes managing and overseeing a team of direct service staff, with varying education levels, while providing supervision and consultation. I exhibit strong leader ship skills, sound clinical judgement, and promote a positive work environment. I have experience collaborating and coordinating with community members consisting of a multidisciplinary team to advocate for individualized client needs. My passion is to advocate and empower the clients and communities I serve.
