June Staff Spotlight, Estefania Alfaro-Ruiz

It is our honor to shine light onto our Office Manager, Estefania Alfaro-Ruiz, who has been with Mustard Seed since 2016.  Estefania began working with the organization after learning about a part-time Front Desk position at the new clinic through Faith Action International House but it quickly became clear what a tremendous asset she was to Mustard Seed–she now works full time as the clinic’s Office Manager and general miracle worker, keeping all the necessary paperwork organized and up-to-date. Her favorite part of Mustard Seed is the clinic’s ability to respectfully interact with patients from different cultures. Just being able to share different resources that are available to them is really helpful to the patients’ wellbeing!

Family is at the heart of everything Estefania does and loves.  Her perfect day would be a Sunday, attending church, eating breakfast with her family, and just focusing on her loved ones.  And if she could go anywhere in the world right now?  Mexico, to visit her mother.  She has some advice for her younger self (and not bad advice for the rest of us):  first, don’t ever give up on your dreams–keep pushing through every obstacle. Second, continue your education as much as possible, and learn to speak French if you get the chance.  You never know when it might come in handy!  Thank you Estefania Alfaroruiz for being a part of the Mustard Seed community and team.
