Carmen Gutierrez

Office Administrator

From Carmen...

As the first point of contact to our clients at Taller de José, I ensure that anyone who seeks assistance from us is met with compassion and empathy. My work as Office Manager comes with its stresses, as would any other job, though my work here is very personal to me and so I am motivated to provide our clients with the kindness I wish was given to my parents. My parents relied heavily on my siblings and me to take care of any inquiry or letter that came in English addressed to them. I’ve been my parents’ support system all of my life and I constantly see my parents in the clients we serve here at Taller. I am proud to form part of the community that raised me and now my biggest hope is that I help raise this community when they need it the most.
