Meet your Support Group Facilitators!
I have been employed by the Department of Public Health for 13 years. I have the wonderful experience of providing health education in the field of sexual health, lead poisoning, child passenger safety, senior injury prevention and quitting smoking. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and travel.
I teach about quitting tobacco because I am a former smoker of 40 years and I have personally experienced life as a smoker. I know what people are going through when trying to quit smoking. I have the knowledge, skills and tools to help people become smoke-free.
I take teaching the support group seriously. This is a participatory group, we do hands-on activities while learning how to become tobacco free. It is a fun support group.
Come to my support group if you are thinking about becoming tobacco free.
I have been a health educator with the SF Department of Public Health for 28 years. I have been fortunate to work in various neighborhoods of our city and serving the people of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. I have experience working with families, children, adolescents, and the elderly.
I have had some personal hardships that at the time seemed overwhelming, but I have survived and thrived. And I now know that no matter where people come from and no matter how much hardship they have endured they still have the strength to better their own lives (with a little help from others).
I believe that once you set your mind up about something you want to change in your life you will get it done. So when I hear you say that you want to quit smoking, I know that you will!
My job is to support you all through your process of quitting by giving you the tools that will help you accomplish your goal! I look forward to working with you.
