About Coral

I watched my loved ones overcome poverty, abuse, disease, and alcoholism. The odds seemed against us but we never wavered from our determination to make our lives better and to encourage each other to move forward. Each obstacle my family faced, I learned that determination and compassion are key. It helped me to set goals and work toward them. I drew my inspiration from watching what the human spirit can overcome when necessary and knowing that everyone is capable of doing so. I watched my great-grandmother fight her battle with dementia and Alzheimer's, which helped to develop my passion of one day becoming an occupational therapist. I learned compassion from living with and working with those who are greatly affected by physical, mental and emotional limitations. In learning throughout my life, it feels that care giving in some type, has called me. I want to be able to positively impact the people and families I work with, just like others did for me.
