Ms. Paula Nieves
Ms. Nieves has been a therapist in the community for the past ten years and found her passion in the institutional/educational setting five years ago. Stumbling into the educational setting by accident has been her greatest joy.
Ms. Nieves has a dual Master’s degree in Mental Health and Marriage and Family Therapy from Carlos Albizu University, a Bachelors in Science in Criminology from the University of Central Florida, and an Associates degree in Science in Physical Therapy from Miami-Dade College.
Today, Ms. Nieves is dedicated to the health and well being of our youth and guiding them to strive for their greatest potential. Her motivation is to assist students in finding their passion and being empowered to live with purpose.
Born in New York, yet, a native to Miami and all of its diversities, she enjoys the outdoors, spending time with family and friends, and traveling. She is also an avid reader, loves to cook, and enjoys the arts and music.
She joined the SASH team this school year and is excited to share her commitment to helping others by motivating and guiding students in reaching their life goals.
