About Cynthia Sanchez

Cindy was born and raised in the panhandle of Texas. She is blessed to have two extraordinary sons, along with two beautiful daughters-in-law and an adorable grandson. She was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home mom, but when she decided to re-enter the workplace, she became the DNA and International Specialist at the American Quarter Horse Association.

After her sons’ adult lives had begun, Cindy got divorced and started her own life. In 2014, she moved to Rosanky and found employment at a juvenile detention center. However, she quickly realized that it was not the right place for her and subsequently accepted a position at a domestic violence and sexual assault agency. During her three-year tenure there, she supported thousands of survivors. Although it took a toll on her spirit, she still wanted to be in a role where she could be helpful.

Encouraged by a TLR employee, she joined TLR and became the organization’s first female recovery advocate, where she has been employed for over two years. She briefly worked as a chef at another rehab facility but after 18 months, she returned to TLR, considering it her true home. Cindy loves her position, and it shows through her dedication and passion for helping others.
