I have been a member of NAMI North Texas and a teacher of Family-to-Family in Spanish and English for the past 8 years. I had been in the hotel business for the past 37 years, 25 of those in Dallas, Texas. I love my family; they are my support. I love walking my dog and gardening (they are also my therapy). I immensely enjoy my Family-to-Family classes because I am able to pay back all the love, support, and teaching that NAMI provides for me and my family, and also teach families how to understand and help their loved ones suffering from mental health issues.
