Carmen Ana Gonzalez-Magaz
I am a proud mother, a vocal constituent and an advocate for women’s rights dedicating my studies and professional development to the research and work for victims of domestic violence which has brought to my life opportunities that allowed me to grow as an emphatic, sensible, respectful and creative and goal oriented towards diverse populations confronting different needs that must be addressed in a planned, holistic and open-minded framework.
I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Massachusetts and had the wonderful experience of living in Tampa, Fl., for ten years, but after Hurricanes Irma and Maria hit my island, I decided to return home and deliver much needed assistance and support proving that the odds are to be overcome with the amplified definition of resiliency, including the use of all ways and measures to guarantee patient safety and well-being.
Currently, I work with girls, adolescents and women on various issues and my greatest satisfaction is the strengthening of affective bonds within the family and the creation of new families through adoption or reconstitution. Hence, I act to empower all family members in the transformation of dynamics within the home, while strengthening relationships. I also dedicate my work to the improvement of mood, anxiety, adjustment and eating disorders.
