Jalessa Castrellon

Jaleesa graduated from Biola University with a BA in Psychology. She is looking forward to continuing her education and pursuing her Master’s degree.
Jaleesa enjoys working for ABSI because she has the opportunity to work with children in need. Her passion for this field began in 2004 when a family member was diagnosed with ASD.
Jaleesa has had the pleasure of serving children of all ages with unique needs and backgrounds. Before joining ABSI she worked in a group home with teens. She believes that one of the greatest gifts when working with children is to witness their success. Her goal is to continue to be a positive part of helping others reach their goals.
Jaleesa is a zealous fan of Harry Potter and Disney. She also enjoys cooking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
