Languages Spoken


I have been with the Southwest Y for 16 years. I started working at the YMCA Preschool in February of 2002. I transitioned our program to a bilingual program and became the curriculum coordinator for the preschool. After the Southwest Y’s renovation, I became the Youth and Family Coordinator and the Occupancy Coordinator. The first generation of children who graduated from my Pre-K class are now in college and I am still in touch with some of them. The Y is my second home and my second family. I have met people who are now in my life forever and will always be close to my heart. I have two daughters who grew up at the Y and learned to swim at the Y. I love my Y, my co-workers, my staff and our members.
