Darling A. Garcia is the Director of Community Services at Elder Law of Michigan and has been a member of the Elder Law of Michigan team since September 2013.

Before working at Elder Law of Michigan, the most interesting job she had was working for a local veterinarian office in California. At that office, she learned to drive on the clinic’s beloved “yellow bird” car, which was a 1977 Toyota Celica GT Liftback with standard transmission.
The top ten books she recommends anyone to read are (in no particular order):

  1. Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes
  2. The Power of One, by Bryce Courtenay
  3. Native Son, by Richard Wright
  4. One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  5. The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini
  6. The Famished Road, by Ben Okri
  7. The Idiot, by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  8. The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, by Carson McCullers
  9. The Fire Next Time, by James Baldwin
  10. The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho

Darling has a relentless spirit and a profound respect for those before her that have paved the path, helping to clear obstacles in her journey through life.
