I began working at CALM in April of 2015.
I am Lompoc’s Administrative and Quality Assurance Specialist. I take care of all the day-to-day tasks in the office, as well as process paperwork and assess technical issues.
Every year, CALM has an amazing program called “Adopt a Family” for the families of clients who may be financially struggling around the holidays. Hundreds of gifts are given to families in need by our amazing donors. Last year, I had a caregiver begin to cry and thank me profusely for making her Christmas a magical one for her children. It was a really beautiful moment, and definitely a gift in and of itself!
If I could do one thing to make kids’ lives better I would promote understanding of diversity so that kids would feel more comfortable growing into their authentic selves, no matter what that may be!
Many people assume that their child needs to be a victim of abuse to be eligible for services. Not true! We have so many amazing programs for children of all ages and adverse life experiences.
