Areas of Expertise
Yulissa joined VWS in the fall of 2020 as an intern for our Education and Outreach Program. Currently a senior at Cal State Monterey Bay, she is majoring in collaborative health and human services with a concentration in social work. In her short time at VWS she has focused her attention on increasing the social-emotional learning and trauma informed teaching skills of our staff. Her weekly staff development activities have enhanced our instructors' abilities to address the needs of our students, and to bring us together as a team, during the pandemic. She has also been laying the groundwork for upcoming nature prescription programs - compiling data and working with our team to move forward as best we can with new programming during this time of virtual engagement. Yulissa is excited to continue her own education, and to inspire youth through nature education at VWS.
