“I believe that we all are the heroes of our lives and have the capacity to mould, shape, change or help ourselves and in that process I can be a guiding light to help my clients and families to discover hope, abundance and growth. I was motivated to join CMES because they believe in helping the clients reach the maximum capacity of independence, this is in sync with my focus too.”
