Mrs. Itzel Pacheco serves as a Miracles for Kids Programs Assistant. She supports the Programs department by guiding and assisting new families through the Bill Pay application process. She helps support the Programs team in coordinating Wellness events that allow our families to step out of their day-to-day routines into an environment of laughter and hope.
Growing up Itzel was always interested in helping others, she aimed to better understand individuals on a deeper level and understand why individuals are who they are. After High School, Itzel decided to attend Golden West Community College. It was then that she decided to major in Psychology. After two years Itzel transferred to Cal State Fullerton for an additional two years. In 2020 she was the first in her family to graduate with a bachelor’s. It was when Itzel worked as an Autism paraprofessional at an Elementary in Santa Ana that she discovered a new passion, assisting children with needs. When Itzel stumbled upon the Miracles for Kids webpage and read about the programs this non-profit organization offers, she was intrigued. Her desire is to help make a difference in the world even if it is one family at a time. In her free time, she enjoys being outdoors. She loves the ocean and going out for hikes. Spending time with her family has always been a priority for her. They are her greatest inspiration.
