Born and raised in Hood River, Oregon, Juana has always had a passion for helping individuals in the community, especially children. Her passion for helping little ones started in high school while volunteering in a preschool. There, she realized how early one can impact a child’s life. Juana strives to bring everything she has to offer to her job at Play Works.
With an A.A. from Columbia Gorge Community College, she is currently pursuing a B.S. in sociology at Portland State University in hopes of entering a field where she can impact the community in a positive way.
When she is not busy with her studies, Juana enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, and exploring the nature that Oregon has to offer. Most of all, she loves spending time with her family.
