As a formerly incarcerated individual and drug addict, Jeffrey understands the barriers Flintridge's constituents face. His personal experiences drove him to turn his life around by pursuing higher education. Not only did Jeffrey earn his Bachelor's in Criminal Justice and Master's in Social Work from Cal State L.A., but he also graduated first in his class.

As the Program Specialist, Jeffrey plays an essential role in facilitating Flintridge's Apprenticeship Preparation Program (APP) and Reintegration Services. Jeffrey helps develop, organize and coordinate components of APP. He ensures that the logistics of the program are orderly by setting up site visits, being the point person to contact, keeping records and entering data. In addition, Jeffrey also helps instruct the course, follow up with constituents, and conduct mock interviews. For Reintegration Services, Jeffrey is responsible for coordinating the PACT fair and reporting results to the Pasadena Altadena Reintegration Council.

Jeffrey loves working at Flintridge Center. He appreciates the openness and transparency of the organization and enjoys the team and collaborative environment. Alongside his work at Flintridge, Jeffrey enjoys volunteering and being involved in community events. He has done extensive work helping addicts overcome their struggles and has been a volunteer at 2nd call to help high-risk individuals with their personal development. During his free time, Jeffrey likes to golf, hike, eat and spend time with his family and friends.
