As for our office manager Angie, we are so thrilled to have such a sweet and dedicated team member to keep things running smoothly and orchestrate our day to day. I wanted to share her quote with you all as it perfectly captures her charming and welcoming persona.

“I absolutely love my role as office manager at San Diego Kids First and being the main point of contact and resource for information. Every staff member is so kind and wonderful to work with and I am extremely thankful for being part of such an amazing organization. They truly inspire me by the wealth of care, knowledge, and professionalism they each possess. It is comforting to know that we are in good hands when they are around. It is so exciting to have finally found my work family and I’m very pleased to call this place my home. I am here for you and happy to help!”
