As the Program Director, I oversee all departments within our agency but also help support each team member to reach their goals of serving our persons served. I take immense pride in having been a part of Life Fountain in 2014 as a small company providing PCA/245d services and then returning in 2019 by adding Case Management services. I thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the numerous co-workers, staff, and persons served whom I have interacted throughout these years. The best part of my job has been to help our community with the care and support they need to live independent and fulfilling lives. I have always had a passion for helping others, additionally being a mom of a special needs child; has allowed me to experience what our persons served go through each day. I also work hard to view each person individually and attempt to gain more understanding of how we can provide the best support and advocacy for each individual.
I was born in Puerto Rico but raised in Saint Paul, MN. I enjoy taking adventures with my family and trying new foods each week! Our family likes to keep busy with projects around our home—whether it's cutting wood for a fire outside, taking on a home improvement project, or doing some organizing- it is never a dull moment in our home! I love all things Disney, and my favorite place to be is all cozied up on the couch with my family, watching movies.
Fun Fact about me: I absolutely love the beach—sitting out in the sun and feeling the sand on my feet BUT… I am deathly afraid of swimming in the ocean!
