Contributes twenty-nine (29) years in the Vocational Rehabilitation field to Fontana Resources at Work (FRW).  Sylvia began her career in the Vocational Rehabilitation field as a secretary/bookkeeper.  She took advantage of all career opportunities to educate herself by attending all available classes and training seminars to further her knowledge in the field.  She has successfully completed several behavioral modification and consumer rights seminars.  She holds a Non-Profit Management Certificate from the University of California-Riverside. Sylvia firmly believes that you must hold a balance between program and commercial business to be successful.  One does not work without the other.  In her opinion, our mission statement upholds that philosophy:  providing a stable environment (commercial business) to provide services and supports (program) allowing our consumers to excel in their goals.
