Trauma Counselor | Medical Case Manager

PhD Student Walden University
I am originally from East Los Angeles and have a strong desire to further build a socially and economically stronger community for the next generation. I joined Connect Marquette two years ago because as a post graduate student I learned the high value of community engagement and partnership.
I have found that the relationships and activities I have been able to participate in through Connect Marquette have continued to benefit me personally as a single mother, a student, and now socially. I learn new skills in relation to investing in the relationships of citizens and people in leadership positions. The organization help integrate unique ideas and a positive energy that everyone brings to the community.
With Connect Marquette I hope to be able to learn more about what is important for the community to be addressed, what services are needed and what I can do to help give back to my community.
