Margarita Sandoval

margarita_sandoval-minHello all! My name is Margarita Sandoval, and I am excited to be a part of your journey with Heart Night Services. Growing up, I was placed in the foster care system at a young age. I suffered constant court battles, and custody trials. The only people I spoke with were social workers, case workers and therapists. However, all I ever wanted was a friend, someone to be there for me. Therefore, I found my calling to work with people, to help them in any way that I could. In 2017, I will graduate from Azusa Pacific University with a Bachelor’s of Arts in the field of psychology with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy. Because I felt called to helping others, in the future I plan to attend school for a Master’s Degree in Social Work in hopes to open my own clinic for therapeutic, and counselling practices. I have five years of experience with working with infants, children and young adults from newborns until twenty-four years of age. I have also volunteered for a company whose worked with dependent adults, disability, and hospice care for two years. I have internationally traveled to Mexico, South Africa, and Costa Rica on mission’s trips, and study abroad experiences within the last year (and will hopefully continue). Though I do contain a significant amount of involvement in these activities, I have learned that it isn’t about my hardships that have made me special, but the way I overcome them. I fell that with my expertise, and motivational drive, I would be delighted to become an extension of your family.
