Dina Ester González (she/her) was born and raised in Diriamba, Nicaragua. At twelve years of age, her family moved to San Pedro Sula in northern Honduras. There, she married a pastor with whom she has formed a beautiful family. They have had the opportunity to work as pastors and missionaries in different parts of Honduras, Mexico and on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware. With Safe Americorps under the Telamon corporation, González trained agricultural workers on protection from pesticides and heat stress on farms in Maryland and Delaware. She then worked for the Wicomico Health Department in the Susan Komen Program, training Hispanic women in the area of early detection and awareness of breast and cervical cancer. After two years, she returned to the Telamon corporation where she had the opportunity to work for six years in the Housing & Financial Empowerment and Workforce & Career Services Programs. For the past six years, Dina has worked especially with migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families, visiting Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia farms.
