Full Service Community Health Centers - Operation Manager

Shalika Ulloa 

I have been with the Full- Service Community School Health Center since 2014. I am a mother of four beautiful children and worked as a Dental Assistant for 8 years. I left to attend American Institute to pursue added credentials needed in the field of dentistry. Becoming a Treatment Coordinator of a Health Center has become one of the best decisions I have made in my life. Being able to grow a relationship with all the children in the Health Center is what I look forward to each day. Whether it is providing services for them or just having them stop in the say "hi"...they have become my children too. My promise is that I will go above and beyond to meet their Health Care needs. I now look forward to my new role as Operations Manager.
