Act with gross impunity and are cookie cutter
30 year career without any complaints. Double M.S. from the UoA in Rehabilitation Counseling graduating class 1988. 2 women at a local hospital filed false complaints against my license then fired me as they were doing to 1) all older staff 2) all black staff. I sued that hospital for wrongful termination and won. The Executive Director, Tobi Zavala, insisted on seeing the documentation from the law firm as if she was going to get rid of fraudulent complaint. She did nothing. In trying to talk with her, she hangs up on me when I am polite and professional, she refuses to answer questions. I’ve had the most interaction with her and she is horrific. She must be replaced by someone who is a professional in this field and who doesn’t discriminate against people who are not Latino, Republican Trump supporters. That is NOT the place for that. She can have that in her private life but not in the work place. I supported myself and my son on my salary. Now, I can’t get any jobs at all because I worked my entire adult life as a psychotherapist and for NO reason, Ms. Zavala, even with other courts in Arizona higher than her stating I am innocent, refuses to remove the fraudulent complaints. During a telephonic hearing, I had to put my phone on mute so they didn’t hear me but I could hear them….they were snickering about the losses of my husband, mom and dad within a 2 year period of time, that I’d been their only caretaker and did it 100% from the time they needed help until their last exhalation. They said, and this is a quote because I keep a journal, “She sounds severely mentally ill.” And sure enough I was sent to get a $1,000.00 psychologist evaluation to determine if (after 30 years 0 complaints and taking care of my family, I was SMI…severely mentally ill). This morning, Ms. Zavala hung up on me for asking a question I asked her in email 2 days ago then again this morning. I was absolutely professional and polite and she talked over me then hung up on me. This is NOT a valid, reliable board. It must be investigated and I’m doing everything I can to make sure it is investigated. This is horrific abuse. My life is destroyed and I have absolute proof I did nothing wrong. This board behaves with gross impunity. It must be investigated.
