Aside from the sheer fear of being roasted, I am honored to take a turn in the hot seat to support the important work of the El Paso Child Guidance Center, a leader in mental health education and trauma-informed care in our community.

I invite all my colleagues and friends to join us for what will be a fun night to help the Center expand its impact and reach. See you October 26th!
