I am the parent of two amazing children, one of which has a special health care need. I have engaged in advocacy for them and other children to ensure that all children have access to quality health care. As a part of my advocacy work, I have served and an interpreter and advocate for families that speak Spanish as their preferred language. In this role, I have seen the challenges experienced by individuals with limited English proficiency to access needed services. For this reason, I am excited to bring my knowledge and expertise to this important project.
