I have never worked for a company that feels like working with my family. In the good sense. We all work hard and are recognized for doing so.

I love that my job challenges me every day in different ways. I am able to use my skills and knowledge and EEE provides an environment for professional development and growth. I love the people I work with. They are my family and a pleasure to work with and they make it enjoyable to come to work everyday. I love being a part of something larger that makes a difference for our community and our veterans that served our country.

As a veteran myself, working here gives me the opportunity to use my passion to help those in need.

Coming from a military family, my passion is to assist veterans experiencing homelessness to help resolve issues standing between them and permanent housing. Esperanza En Escalante also recognizes the therapeutic bond between human and animal, thus allowing veterans entering the transitional housing program to keep their pets. I provide grooming and training services free of charge for our veterans’ animals, as my background of being a former vet tech, groomer, and K-9 trainer has benefitted our veterans with pets.
