I have been Executive Director/CEO of Bill Wilson Center in Santa Clara County for 29 years. Serving over 10,000 youth and their family members every year, Bill Wilson Center services include counseling, housing, education, and prevention. My expertise includes working with runaway and homeless youth, foster youth, and youth involved with the justice system. Bill Wilson Center operates under guiding principles that permeate most of my blogs.
I am also a columnist for the San Jose Inside. My blogs on this site cover issues related to youth in foster care and in the juvenile justice system, as well as homeless and runaway youth.
On a personal note, I am a single mom of a teenager and I enjoy hiking in my spare time. My other blog “hikingsiliconvalley” lists my recent hikes.
