Her active involvement has given her the opportunity to understand the resources and information this particular community needs. It has also led her to advocate for them with the different organizations she keeps in touch with through both her professional and personal work environment. She finds her work very rewarding and valuable as it has been able to inform and educate the community she serves on how to understand and navigate the health system, how to take advantage of their health benefits, teach them how to identify signs of suicide and in result be able to save lives. She conducts several educational health workshops that show individuals how to take control of their health when already living with major chronic diseases, such as diabetes, alta presion sanguinea, chronic pain, and more. Her experience working with the low-income Spanish-speaking immigrants is rewarding as they are always so grateful in receiving the information that the majority of them do not know it exists.

The work that she does at both locations has helped her shape into the Promotora she is today.

Through the Exceptional Family Center she is able to provide families of children with a developmental disability with the tools and resources that they need to help their children succeeds. She finds that many families do not know where and to who they should reach out to for help due to the language barrier, limited resources, and knowledge around the particular subject.
