Hello, I am Miriam Jaqueline Gutierrez Perez (she/her/ella). I was born in Mexico. My family moved to Utah when I was 4 and have been here ever since. I love listening to people and getting to know them and their stories, I also enjoy being around my brother, sisters, and friends watching movies, listening to music and just hanging out. Going to the movies or watching movies is my favorite pastime.
I am the Youth Programs Coordinator, I work with youth as a mentor. I also help facilitate some of our youth groups like Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and FUERZA, our youth group for 12-18 year olds and work with schools as a Latinx Student Mentor. I have my Bachelors in psychology from Weber State University and I am a CPSS.
My passion is helping kids/youth, bringing mental health awareness to my latinx community and winnie the pooh. I value the importance of empowering others, validating their feelings and being an adult I wish I would have had as a teen.
