Congratulations Laura Guttierrez, Behavioral Health Advocate

“Laura recently took on the responsibility of becoming our lead BHA and has been going above and beyond in her transition of rolls. She has worked hard to train and support new staff , organize and take ownership of projects, and also serve on various committees in the organization and community. I am so proud of the way Laura balances being a full time student, leader and mom. I can’t wait to watch her grow in her career. Laura is going to make one heck of a counselor someday! Laura cares so deeply about the well being of the patients she serves, but also of her co workers. Laura is a queen at setting boundaries and advocating for people. I am so grateful for her everyday!”
