from Acapulco, Mexico, is our newly appointed Casa San Jose’s Bilingual Navigator. Prior to working at Casa San Jose, Monique worked at the Holy Family Institute with unaccompanied minors for two and half years.
Monique is a current Dreamer who migrated along with her mother and brother to the U.S. when she was 4 years old. As she grew up, she saw her family needing help with the language barrier. As a result, she always helped her parents with translating. That is where her passion comes in for her helping the Latinx community and her position as a Bilingual Navigator at Casa San Jose.
