Department Assistant

Marlen Rodriguez is the newest member of the PADRE team. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Health Science from California State University, Fullerton with an emphasis in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. Additionally, she attended a vocational nursing school and received a licensure as a nurse assistant while also graduating at the top of her class and working for a private homecare agency. For nine months, Marlen worked as an intern at Easter Seals in Brea, where she gained experience working with teens and adults with special needs. Marlen chose to focus on Health Promotion because she wanted to venture within the health field and make a direct impact in people’s lives. Becoming a Registered Nurse and continuing to work alongside kids living with Type 1 diabetes is her goal.
