Ana Mendoza is a proud and outspoken Latina that was born and raised in Los Angeles. As a young girl she had a strong passion for helping others and as she grew older she decided she wanted to dedicate her future to doing just that. Growing up in a low-income community helped to motivate Ana to strive for a better life. In 2017 she graduated from California State University, Northridge.
Ana chose to major in Child and Adolescent Development with a minor in psychology. She knew that she wanted to work with children and families from underprivileged neighborhoods to give back to a community like her own. During the time that Ana was enrolled as a full-time student she also accepted two positions at an ABA company. There she dedicated her time to providing in-home behavioral therapy to children on the autism spectrum; she was also a senior administrative assistant to the office manager. Ana was truly humbled by the wonderful opportunity to work both in an administrative and clinical setting.
She is thrilled and so grateful to be a part of the team and hopes to pursue her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in the near future.
