Bilingual Mentor Case Manager
Blanca is a Roaring Fork Valley local! She graduated from Basalt High School (Whoah! Go LongHorns!) She attended Metropolitan State University to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Social work. She always knew she wanted to return to the valley and has had a passion to serve her community. Blanca was involved with the Buddy program growing up as a little buddy and continued to be a big buddy through the peer-to-peer program. During her undergrad experience, she mentored youth with lifestyle skills and navigated them on how to overcome challenges, changes, and transitions to become their version of success in their personal life.
In her free time, she loves to do what locals love to do; hiking, camping, paddle boarding, skiing, and honestly anything that gives her the opportunity to be outside with her German Shepherd.
