Angelita is a community-based rehabilitation service worker from the little town of Enumclaw just outside of Seattle Washington, but she and her family moved to Rexburg, Idaho so her husband could attend school at BYU-Idaho. Angelita earned her AA degree in high school and her AS degree in veterinary technology from BYU-Idaho in 2014. During her time as a vet tech, she was also able to participate as a volunteer in PATH equine therapy. She then served a mission for her church in rural Virginia and returned to BYU-Idaho to finish her BS with a cluster in dance in 2016.
Although Angelita worked in the medical field to save up money for graduate school, she discovered in working with grieving pet owners that she has a passion for helping people work through trauma. She is currently attending school online at Simmons University to obtain her MSW and become a licensed clinical social worker. She also continues to be passionate about dance and movement and hopes to complete her dance therapy certification to help her continue to better serve her future clients.
Lita loves providing CBRS services and meeting new people and is dedicated to continually learning in her field so she can provide the best services possible. She finds joy in volunteering in her community, teaching and performing Irish step-dancing, and hiking in nature.
