(Bilingual Spanish)
EOPS Counselor, Counseling Instructor, Advisor to LLN & MEChA

I have been a Cuesta counselor since 1994. I moved here from Shafter, a small town near Bakersfield College where I was also an EOPS counselor and instructor before moving to the Central Coast. My past work experience includes having been a MFCC therapist at a domestic violence agency, founder, director, and counselor of alcoholism treatment centers, a high school teacher, health educator for two rural health clinics and coordinator of social services and outreach at an inter city program in San Diego. I bring with me a wealth of varied experience.

Helping you find solutions to your problems is what I enjoy best. In my spare time I get involved in cultural events and enjoy spending time with my family and close friends. I love working in the garden, watching movies, and kicking back.
