Lucia Ullauri – Bi-Lingual/Bi-Cultural (Spanish) Family Partner
Lucia Ullauri was born and raised in Ecuador, where she received a degree in Business Administration. She moved to Portland in 2009 looking for a fresh start and for new opportunities for herself and her daughter. At that time, Lucia had very limited knowledge of English. She struggled adapting to the new system and finding resources to help her improve her quality of life. After nine years of working in childcare and volunteering in Mobile Community Health Express Clinics (Tele health) to help the community, I became a Traditional Health Worker or Promotora de Salud in 2014. She is very passionate to help the Latino community who face struggles in their life, and to connect with local, low cost community clinics to improve their health, and education.
