Magdalena, or Madeline as many like to call her, was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Magdalena moved to Texas with her family in 1976, when her father was offered a job in Dallas at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Dallas. Her father later opened his own catering business in 1978. Magdalena worked with her parents as a Sales Representative for 35 year for her father's business. They closed the business in 2011 when her father passed away.
In 1992, Magdalena married her East Texas Cowboy and love of her life, James, and later in that same year she was diagnosed with Multiple Scleroses.
Magdalena came to Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas as a volunteer in August of 2014 and was later hired part time to help out in the office. Magdalena answers phone calls, handles files, helps applicants with applications and paperwork, and many other critical components in the office. She enjoys working at RTGD because of the gratification it gives her when we are able to those in need.
