Tijera recently worked as an Assistant Sports Director at the Greater Kansas City YMCA. Her drive and motivation is to help develop activities for youth to establish healthy habits in their path to achieving their dreams.  She chose to work at CDFY because of the importance of what CDFY is trying to accomplish for the community and thinks that it is important to instill the value of a drug-free life in our youth because it is crucial to their development into adulthood.
