Hello, my name is Vanessa Gudino. I am from Toppenish, WA. A bit about my experience with youth goes back a couple of years of volunteer work. During my tenure in college, I volunteered at this program called Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH). My duties were to work with individuals with specialized needs to ride horses and learn the fundamentals of safety while riding. My experience has helped me with building positive and trusting relationships with each individual to facilitate functional life skills, problem solving, and great communication.

These skills, combined with my professional and pleasant demeanor will allow me to greatly benefit Communities and Schools. I am prepared for an exciting opportunity to make an impact on the educations system, and I am excited for CIS to promote a better pathway to educational success. Outside of work I like to spend time with my family and watching movies!
