WHY DO YOU WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?
As a child I always felt a special affection and a lot of compassion for seniors. In the course of my career I had the opportunity to work for the private sector but I discovered that I have a greater inclination for serving vulnerable populations.
HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR WORK AT SENIORLAW CENTER?
My commitment to making SeniorLAW Center more responsive and more accessible to the Spanish-speaking senior community, who often face crises of housing, family violence, abuse and financial exploitation.
