This is my sixth year being a school nurse, my previous five years were spent at Cattell Elementary. Before school nursing, I worked with children at ChildServe continuing care and transitional care units. I am here to help you and your children with your physical, mental and emotional needs. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our three children. We love boating on the lake and cheering on the Cyclones. I am excited to be a CV tiger! Please let me know if you need help with anything.
My name is Vanessa Avalos and I am the Office Manager at Capitol View. Before becoming Office Manager, I was the Bilingual Community Outreach worker and I worked with ELL families and students. This is my fifth year at Capitol View and I have gotten to know our families very well which is very important to me to build those relationships.I look forward to meeting and building those relationships with our new families this year!
My family is from Mexico but I was born in California. My family and I moved to Marshalltown, Iowa when I was 5 years old, so I consider myself to be an Iowa girl. I graduated from Marshalltown Community College in 2011 with an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I then received my Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish from the University of Northern Iowa in 2013. My husband, Juan, and I have two boys, Ryan who is five and Liam who is three.
