RISE UP RADIO featuring Frederick Gaston and Hero of the Week - Rachel Ruiz


This week on Rise Up Radio we had the privilege of talking with Fred Gaston, of Omega Family Global.  Fred served our country in the U.S. Navy as a Chinese linguist and went on to build his own law firm, Gaston & Gaston, APLC. After a decade with his practice and firm focusing on business litigation, Fred began a new adventure in the field of fertility, assisted reproduction and surrogacy.   Listen in to glean some of Fred's invaluable wisdom on letting your path unfold to a place where you are empowered to give back to the community with joy and freedom. One of Fred's favorite ways to do that in San Diego is through this week's charity highlight, San Diego Nice Guys.

Be sure to catch our Hero of the Week, Rachel Ruiz, an MSW Candidate for May 2016 at SDSU, sharing with us the inspiring stories of leadership and community change coming from the grassroots movements of residents in Linda Vista.   Rachel has been in social services for 4 years and is a burgeoning leader and professional in social work. She currently works at Bayside Community Center in Linda Vista as a Community Development Intern. She has previously worked in the field of family violence, after school and youth development, and counseling.
