What I like about RCORP. “I am most proud of the relationships I have established with the communities I have had the opportunity to support. Rural communities are so resilient and innovative, and I am constantly amazed at the depth and breadth of the work being done to prevent and treat substance and opioid use disorders (SUD/OUD), and support individuals in their recovery from SUD/OUD. It is my absolute honor to serve these communities in their efforts to improve outcomes across the country. I am also very proud to work with such skilled and talented colleagues who bring a wealth of expertise, passion, and expectations of excellence to ensure the support we offer grantees is unmatched.”
Ojeda brings her vast experience to every interaction and prioritizes relationship-building, which is critical to building lasting and meaningful partnerships. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her two nieces, Willow and Skye. At every opportunity, Ojeda enjoys reading and spending time connecting with the healing power of nature with her dogs and horse.
