Kimberly Lapuz

Kimberly Lapuz has a Master’s degree in Special Education focusing on Autism studies. She is a teacher in Washoe County School District in Reno, Nevada and has taught a wide range of students from kindergarten to high school, including many diverse demographics and cultural backgrounds. Kim became interested in mental health when she started noticing that some of her students were not able to access services due to a lack of insurance or for being underinsured. She also comes from a military background (father and spouse) and veteran mental health is another area of passion. For fun, Kim likes to travel around the world, hike, and spend time with family and friends.
