Ms. Rojas has been a resident of Germantown, Maryland for over 28 years.  She is proud to call New York City and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands alternate homes.  She was appointed to the commission in 2016 and has been serving in this position to assist the women of Montgomery County.  She serves as the liaison between the commission and the commission’s reentry program.  She is the Program Specialist at the Montgomery County Correctional Facility’s American Job Center.  She has over 17years of experience in public health, case management, and training/coaching and 14 years in tobacco cessation treatment. Her passion is to build positive self-images through interactive and supportive training.  As a certified Offender Workforce Development Specialist (OWDS) and National Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF), Ms. Rojas works closely with the inmate population (with a specialization in the female inmates) to grow and maximize their strengths, reach their potential, and achieve positive results prior to their release back to the community.  Ms. Rojas has had the opportunity of traveling throughout the United States sharing with practitioners how to work the justice involved population.  Due to the great work being done at one of the first American Job Center’s “behind the walls” in the nation, she has had the opportunity of being interviewed by CSPAN, PBS, and other media outlets.  Her personal mission is to always see the glass as half full and to encourage others to stay positive in the midst of adversity. She is the proud mother of 2 adult children and is very passionate about “giving back” to her community. One of her most recent accomplishments is that she recently became an author.
