Staff Spotlight: Gisela Barroso, Legal Advocate - Human Options

Gisela joined the Human Options family as a Legal Advocate in January and is a team member at Corbin Family Resource Center. Gisela quickly became an essential part of the team, helping many of our families through Legal Advocacy services.

Gisela is a graduate of the University of La Verne in Criminology. She has experience in working at the OC Sheriffs Crime Lab, as a Medical Interpreter, and as a Hotline Advocate.  Gisela enjoys dancing, skating, listening to music, and hiking in her spare time. 

When asked about her experience at Human Options so far, Gisela shared, “What I like most about being a Legal Advocate, is that I get to educate clients on their legal rights and accompany them in court for moral support. I enjoy these aspects of being a Legal Advocate because I see how some clients gain strength with this new information, especially if they are immigrants.”
