Our Staff – Case Manager 1

ana@casasanjose.org

is from Monterrey N.L. Mexico. She studied Electronic Engineering at The Universidad Autonoma de NL, but a social worker at heart. Since her teenage years, she was involved in social services through the Movement of Christian Life. They went to poor communities to educate and help families in need and evangelized with words and actions.
As a professional, she spent time working in a steel mill as a maintenance engineer developing equations to optimize the hot strip mill. She also worked for an electronic component manufacturer where she created technical operation and maintenance manuals and developed training programs for how to use and maintain the machinery.

She returned to work in a different steel mill company, where she was responsible for the training of the operators, engineers and executives for the ISO9000, which is an international quality control system. After this job, she married and came to the USA, where she worked for a laundry company with the installation of new tunnel washers and drying machines. She then worked for an interpreting company where she translated for hospitals in the delivery, emergency, and operation rooms as well as in courts for domestic violence and traffic violation cases. She spent some time as a customer service agent for a pharmaceutical company and as a loan officer and title curative for a financial company.

For the past three years, she worked as a contractor for the Felician Sisters of North America in Mooncrest, finding resources and services for the families that where living in this area. She started out with four families, but that number soon grew to more than 80 families that were receiving some type of aid, including enrollment for school, finding medical services, helping find housing, paying for housing, food, bills, etc.

She now works for Casa San Jose, where she continues to do these duties and improves the quality of life of Latino families in need.
