Training and Research Foundation (former delegate agency)
What positions did you hold?
President of delegate agency Policy Committee
LACOE Policy Council Chairperson
LACOE Community Representative for two years
How old are your children now?
I have four children, but only the youngest two, Erick (15) and Jonathan (10), were in Head Start.
What is your current occupation?
I am a Return Goods Authorization (RGA) Specialist at NS Corporation, the West Coast’s largest eco-friendly car wash manufacturing company.
How did your Head Start experiences influence what you are currently doing?
More than what I am personally doing is what my children have done… they both have mild autism, and because of my wife’s and my participation in their life, they are now flourishing and doing great with minimal help from the school system.
What has been the biggest impact that Head Start has had on you?
To involve myself more in my children’s life and to prepare a better future for them.
