I work with the University of Arizona Pima County Cooperative Extension’s Family Engagement Program as an Outreach Instructional Assistant. I initially started with the University of Arizona Santa Cruz County Cooperative Extension Family Resource Center as a Home Living Assistant back in 2010. I am currently pursuing my baccalaureate degree in Psychology at Grand Canyon University, in which I hope to obtain in March of next year (2023). I am also certified as a Specialist in Integrated Peer Health Professional Services from the Parent & Family Specialist Institute (Project FUTRE Level I Didactic 6-month Training). Working with families and children has been a passion for me. Therefore, being with the Pima County Cooperative Extension gives me the opportunity to help and support families to grow and develop together with better parenting skills. I am blessed to have a beautiful, blended family with 3 amazing children and the love of my life.
