About Queenie

prof-headshot-2Queenie Espino is Family Recovery Resource’s Virtual Assistant who works silently in the background, providing administrative and technical support to team leads and coaches, and making sure that clients are well taken cared of. She strongly believes that LOVE is the ultimate source of joy, peace, strength, hope, inspiration, and success. Hence, working with BALMers has become a job that is truly purposeful for her. It is her fulfillment to encourage people and to witness how they succeed in being a loving mirror to their loved ones.
Queenie is “the person behind the camera.” You’ll hear a lot about her, or you will hear her name being mentioned a lot of times during live calls, but you seldom hear her voice. It’s because she’s an introverted Filipina who, when speaking in English will drain her one day allowance of energy in 30 minutes. But she’s a person who is always hungry for new knowledge, learns quickly, and is very approachable.
Queenie works usually at night (and at daytime when necessary) to be able to take care of her 2 wonderful daughters. Because she’s been attending BALM live calls for more than 3 years now, she has learned that the programs can be used not only for the using loved ones but for all your loved ones including kids. Love is what everybody needs, after all.
To get in touch with Queenie, and to answer your questions, email her at qespino@familyrecoveryresources.com.
