Adult & Youth Advocate
Anais was born in the Dominican Republic to a large family and moved to Florida at the age of six, where she developed a love for the ocean, southern food, and dancing.
Anais was drawn to the helping profession field after witnessing first-hand the challenges experienced by family members with disabilities both in the states and her native country.
She graduated with a BA in Psychology from the University of Florida in 2011 and in 2018 received a master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University. During this time, she worked at a variety of community-centered facilities and programs, where she gained direct experience working with families and individuals with disabilities. Through these experiences, she gained a passion for supporting individuals of all ages in reaching their goals and potential.
In her free time, Anais enjoys singing, salsa dancing, traveling, playing with her young son, and going on long walks around the neighborhood with her husband.
