School Wellness Registered Nurse
Jessica Mangieri, RN, BSN
My name is Jessica Mangieri and I am the School Wellness Registered Nurse. I attended Arizona State University to obtain my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) while concurrently completing all of my nursing coursework through Mesa Community College. Nursing has proven to be a field where I feel I can incorporate my love of science, education, and a desire to help others.
I have a previous degree from Arizona State University in Elementary Education. I never ended up teaching in a traditional public school classroom after graduation, but instead worked with children and families at the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARRC) for 4 years. My role was to provide training in Applied Behavior Analysis and support families new to an Autism diagnosis. I absolutely loved being able to see families become empowered with the knowledge that revealed great hope for their futures.
Additionally, I worked as a lead teacher at a school for children with a variety of developmental disorders. I loved working alongside staff to incorporate evidence-based practices within the classroom setting. This experience brings a great foundation to collaborating with both staff and families here at AZACS.
Outside of AZACS, I’m a mom of two awesome kids, ages 7 and 8. My husband and I enjoy any traveling we can do (especially the beach!), hiking, camping and cooking. We love our Shepherd-mix doggie named Dolly! I’m looking forward to building meaningful relationships with the families at AZACS.
