Project Assistant II
Isabella was born in Los Angeles, California and was raised in Richmond, California. She is a native Spanish speaker and has ten years of working with diverse cultures and populations in the fields of adult behavioral health, sales, and customer service. For five years, she worked closely with the mental health population as an instructor. Being an instructor allowed her to help many adults with disabilities create and achieve goals towards independence. These goals varied from personal hygiene care to anger management. Though this experience was very rewarding, she chose to move on to a different field. Most recently, she was an insurance broker with a license in personal liens and assisted clients who are considered high risk drivers. Isabella brings to the Family Justice Center her varied experiences and skills and her willingness to learn to become a great asset to her community.
