Jinnae Anderson started moving north from Los Angeles as soon as she was of age, and eventually found (and loved) Nevada County. When her son was seven, she realized she needed some serious help with parenting. She attended many parenting classes and saw a wondrous transformation in her family. She decided to bring parenting help to other families in need, got trained, and has been teaching parenting classes for nine years. In her spare time you’ll find her hiking, biking and gardening.
Rocio was born in Guanajuato, Mexico and immigrated at the age of 2 with her parents and older brothers and sister. She has lived in Northern California ever since and has a real passion to help the Latino community because she can relate to the challenges that come with being in a new community where everything is different, and it is difficult to communicate to get your needs met. Prior to coming to PARTNERS Family Resource Center, she worked at Western Placer Unified School District as a Bilingual Parent/ Teacher/ School Liaison. Rocio enjoys working with people of all age groups.
Angelly Figarella was born in Venezuela. Having grown up in a family of teachers, and being inspired by her mother to serve others, she pursued a BA and a Master Degree in Education. Angelly has worked in the school system, in both Venezuela and the United States for 23 years. She has enjoyed teaching English in all levels from Kindergarten to college. Her passion for traveling brought her to California where she decided to settle and make Nevada County her home. Here, she has a family of three, including her 4-legged daughter called Daisy. She has worked with English Language Learner students and their families in our county. From their daily interactions, she became passionate about not only teaching students the language but also helping them with their socio-emotional skills. In her spare time, she loves reading, cross stitching, hiking, riding her bike and spending time with family and friends. Her commitment to making a difference in people’s lives brought her to our organization as a way to expand her abilities to connect with others and support their well-being. Angelly is very happy and grateful to serve the community.
Diana Pasquini was fortunate to have been born into a large, extended Italian-American family, affording her the opportunity to observe and experience the benefits of people working together to care for one another, especially children, whose welfare was the prime focus of an adoring, supportive, and encouraging cadre. As la famiglia helped guide her to a life of service, growing up in the hilly woodlands of western Pennsylvania prepared her for the ruggedly rural lifestyle she has adopted as a resident of California’s San Juan Ridge. As a proud member of this geographically, biologically and culturally diverse foothill community, Diana has worked to preserve a wild and rural quality of life, develop meaningful educational programs, and provide basic services that enhance and enrich the lives of San Juan Ridge residents.
Renée grew up helping out at her aunt’s daycare. As a young person, she discovered that working with others to be creative brought her joy. This environment started the desire for a life filled with art, nature and service.
She believes people thrive with place-based experiences, individuality, nurturing and creative play, nutrition, music and all things belonging. Moving to the Sierra Nevada Foothills allowed her feel at home embedded in a rural life near water and forests. She continues to develop her offerings of arts, crafts & expression programs for students of different ages and life experiences. Her focus is providing opportunities for individuals to explore and experiment with expression and voice. Whether it be in through art, activism, home, career or travels, to communicate for oneself is an invaluable tool. Her career has included running an in-home playgroup, teaching art and craft classes, caregiving for elder and disabled folks as well as working as an independent living specialist and advocate.
