Princess Goffney knew early on that she wanted to dedicate her career to making a difference in the lives of others when she began helping her family care for her grandmother and great-grandmother, who both had Alzheimer’s. So, when she entered the workforce, she spent 20+ years as a Medical Assistant but still knew there was more she had to offer. Taking a leap of faith as a single mother raising two boys, she quit her full-time job and started working part-time for IHSS so she could attend Solano Community College, where she went on to receive her AA in both Human Services and Sociology.
Since graduating, Princess has worked for several nonprofits, including Caminar and Bay Area Community Services, where she served as a Residential Counselor serving clients who struggled with mental health and substance abuse. She also worked as a Case Manager for Turning Point, supporting individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Today, Princess continues to honor her great-grandmother and grandmother as a member of the Empowered Aging team, ensuring older adults are treated with the dignity, respect, and support they are entitled to.
When Princess isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her family, binge-watching Netflix and Hulu, going to the gym, and doing nail art.
