RISE Award winner Natalie Garza

Congratulations to Natalie Garza, Visitor Experience Manager at Bellaboo’s Play and Discovery Center for winning a RISE Award on behalf of South Shore CVA.

Caring for children always comes first for Garza. She has band-aided more scrapes, soothed more burns, cleaned more *accidents* and wiped as many tears as a full-time teacher, which is only 1/10th of her everyday duties. Garza's desk is adorned with pictures and treasures her guests have made her. She really sees every. Single. Child. She gets to their level and makes eye contact and she connects with them.

Garza is described as, “not above and beyond, but in a league of her own.” Her managers know that she is the best and this attraction is one-million times better because of her.
