BIO:

I  currently serve as the Director of the Dept. of Integrated Services for Individuals with Disabilities (DISID) and also as the State ADA Coordinator for Guam.

The DISID agency is the single point of entry entity to advocate, promote, and coordinate the full continuum of services for people with disabilities on Guam.

I graduated from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and  earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Communications. I also earned a Master of Science degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and a Graduate Certificate in Rehabilitation Administration from San Diego State University’s Interwork Institute.

I  was born and raised on Guam and graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1970 and attended the Guam Vocational Trade School and UOG.

I am  married to  the former "Martha Bamba" from Hagatna Heights and we have four children (Emily, Taison, Tim and Natally).

My  parents are the late "Tim Corporal Servino" who was born and raised in the Philippines and my  mother is the late "Pat Santos Servino" who was born and raised on Guam.

I retired from California State University, East Bay (formerly CSU Hayward) in 2010 and relocated to Guam in 2011 after being offered the Directorship position at DISID by Governor Calvo.

My two sons "Taison" and "Tim" have relocated back to Guam last year and are currently employed here. My  two daughters "Emily" and "Natally" work in the Bay Area and reside in our family home in Union City California.

I have  worked in the disability field for over 25 years and formerly served as Director for the Governor’s Commission on Persons with Disabilities, Executive Director for the Guam Developmental Disabilities Council, DOE Early Intervention Program/Special Education Program, Program Coordinator for the UOG/CEDDERS Guam System for Assistive Technology, and as the Director for the Cal State University East Bay Student Disability Resource Center.

I enjoy  swimming, playing volleyball, bowling, basketball and kareoke. I also enjoy photography and spending time with my grandchildren "Rai Ben" and "Baby Jade".
