SFCC Snapshot: Yolanda Rodriguez Galindo

“For the past year I have been working as a full-time administrator-in-training at Vista Hermosa while attending the SFCC I-BEST (Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training Program) program, allowing me to pursue my High School Equivalency while working on my Certified Nursing Assistant certificate. It was rough, and at one point I started to doubt myself. Having the support from my boss, my family, and my HSE instructor Ed, as well as the desire of becoming a good role model for my boys, motivated me to not give up. After I successfully obtained my CNA certificate, I began to work towards my administrator’s license in assisted living and continued to work on my HSE. The day I learned I had passed my last HSE test and saw my diploma, I was speechless. I had doubted myself so many times, but to see my diploma made all the long, stressful days worth it. A few months later I successfully obtained my Administrators License for Assisted Living. I am proud to announce that along with the executive director at Vista Hermosa, I help with the operation of the facility. My goal is to become a Registered Nurse and continue to do what I enjoy the most, help others.”
