Cristina Peña, LCSW

Social Worker

I started my social work career in y early 20s working with adults with disabilities while I was in school at Utah Valley University obtaining my bachelors degree in Social Work. I continued to expand my social work career over the span of almost 6 years at the Division of Child and Family Services and Office of Licensing as a case worker and licensing specialist. During that part of my career I worked with children and families involved in the foster care system. I also assisted with foster families with completing home studies and adoptions. From there I decided to expand my experience in to the medical field and have been working at the University of Utah Health’s Infectious Disease Clinic as a medical case manager. This experience has been a huge learning experience and the past 4 years working in this capacity has been extremely valuable. This has also allowed me the flexibility to return to a true passion of mine, adoption! I am looking forward to continuing my work with all of the wonderful families, children, and team members part of the CHI team!
