Eunices (she/her) moved to Waterbury at age 15. She graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Allied Health Sciences. She is currently a third-year graduate student in the Public Health program and Social Work program at the University of Connecticut. As a social work student, she is concentrating on Community Organizing.
She started her professional experience as a case manager in the Fatherhood Engagement Program in 2021 which allowed her to work with a diverse group of fathers in Waterbury, including Spanish-speaking fathers. Inspired by these interactions, Eunices decided to pursue a career in community organizing to make an impact in her community- using a systems change approach. As a member in RACCE, she is interested in building upon her leadership skills and using her knowledge in serving underrepresented communities. Making Spanish-speaking services more accessible to Spanish-speaking individuals is just one of many disciplines that she wishes to improve upon. In her free time, Eunices enjoys traveling, trying new foods or spending time with her dog, Mr. Toby.
