She believes that people are given the specific task to care for others where they cannot care for themselves. Her passion for helping others is displayed through the nature of her practice, her provision of free legal services to the homeless population through Hope Faith Ministries, and her involvement as a tutor for the Freedom School with Christian Fellowship.
Cecilia is an active member of the National Employment Lawyers Association and JCBA. As a former Judge Kit Carson Roque, Jr. scholarship winner, staying connected to the JCBA community is very important to her.
