Michelle DeFazio is a Librarian II at the Mission Valley Library and is an incredible advocate for First 5 services. She partnered with North Central Healthy Development Services (HDS) to promote our behavioral services including our Engagement Sessions, Steps to Understanding Your Child’s Behavior and Baby Steps classes. She attends our Multidisciplinary Team Meetings and always has valuable input and great questions to ask as she is extremely passionate about learning how to support the patrons she encounters. She is eager to promote early development and behavior interventions and quickly updates the libraries website to add HDS content so families can easily access services. She stays in communication with the region to ensure a seamless referral process. She is an incredible partner and we are very grateful for the amazing work she does for the community!
