Laura Jimenez

Laura has been part of our Santa Barbara program for almost 25 years. To her team members, she is not only a skilled and respected colleague but the heart and soul of the program. She has helped countless people over the course of her distinguished career—from the individuals and families she worked with on their rehabilitative journeys to team members who she mentored and supported. She also helped the program navigate natural disasters that impacted the Santa Barbara community, including fires, floods, and even landslides. Laura is retiring this month and will be missed by those who worked with her. She has made the program stronger and left an indelible impact on the individuals she supported and her colleagues.
