LIFE-WORK PLANNING CENTER
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Spanish. I had completed all of the required classroom work for a Master of Arts Teacher Licensure in Secondary Education (Spanish); and taught in a private school, when I was offered my first position with a non-profit in 1994. That position was working as an advocate for Latino survivors of domestic violence in rural Minnesota.
The decision to accept that position changed the course of my professional life thereafter. Since that time, I have worked in the Battered Women’s Movement and the Displaced Homemaker Program. I have worked in both the Metro Area and in Greater Minnesota.
My passion has been to work for the rights of women and their families; assisting them to find long-term solutions to assure their own safety and self-sufficiency.
