Tune in to “Be Bold America!” Sunday, May 9 2021 at 5:00pm
“My husband and I felt we were going to have a heart attack.” – Allison Guevara
As a special Mothers Day program, we’ll be speaking with Allison Guevara who is a wife and a mother of three. She’ll be sharing with us her intense, traumatic and stressful pandemic year where both she and her husband felt they were going to have a heart attack. Allison will talk about dealing with the pressures of facing the ups-and-downs and zigzags of the pandemic while seeing to the education of their children from 2 to 11years old. Both of them worked while, at the same time, dealt with foot surgery and Allison’s father being in and out of the hospital. All of these struggles were overlaid with feeling the emotions of the radicalized violence in our country. Mothers (and fathers too)? Does this sound familiar?
Allison Guevara is a Social Impact Consultant and mother of 3 children, ages 11, 8, and 2. She co-founded and currently leads the “Live Oak Cradle to Career Initiative” and the “Central Coast Early Childhood Advocacy Network.” Allison grew up in Minnesota and has lived in Santa Cruz with her husband, J. (Jay) since 2004.
