Gabriela (Gaby) Escobar
Consulta Tu Compa Resource & Referral Specialist
I am originally from Guatemala City, Guatemala. I came to the United States at the age of 20, knowing little English. My first job here, which I had for many years, was as a banquet cook. Over time, I taught myself to speak and read English because I did not want to be left behind. Since the moment I could finally understand English, if anyone asked me to accompany them to an appointment where there was a language barrier, I would accompany them. I like to help people navigate systems because I also began the same way, without knowing anything about living in the US. Now that I have the opportunity with Consulta Tu Compa to be able to help the Latinx community, which I am excited to do. It is very satisfying for me to help my community overcome barriers.
