Greetings, I’m new to this organization but have always found myself called to community service both personally and professionally. Previous work include supporting clients at CDCR California Men’s Colony. I was able to see and receive feedback about what many newly releasing individuals need to not return to prison. I also spent a significant part of my career working as a certified teacher and athletic coach. I’m also honored to have served in the US Army and look forward to providing support with my unique experience as a veteran. Thank you for allowing our team the opportunity to partner in this important community endeavor.
Hello, my name is Pablo and I am a Case Manager with the Road to Recovery Integrated Care Center. I previously worked at Allan Hancock College in the Counseling Office as an Administrative Assistant and in the Testing Center as a Testing Specialist. Having a niche with people, I decided to focus on a field of work that is dedicated to helping others, which is the mental health field. I am eager to start this journey and begin engaging with our community members in order to help those in need.
