Susana Arellano-Ascencio

Safe School Professional

Fernley High School

Born in Sylmar California, raised in Sparks Nevada (25+ years).
Attended UNR and graduated with my Bachelors in Social Work with a minor in Human Development Family Studies. Whoo woo Class of 2018!!

I currently reside in Fernley, NV as of 2021. I am a mother of 2 boys with 1 on the way! I’m married to my middle school sweetheart. We also recently added a new puppy to our little family. My passion in life is paying it forward and teaching others the importance of gratitude. I came from a working class family with minimal education. I am the first generation in my family to have graduated from a University in the statesm, (which I am very proud of!)

In my free time I like to go to Lake Tahoe, play board games/ card games with my family. I love to explore new places such as restuarants and try new foods! I’m grateful I get to work with the youth because prevention and awareness is everything to me!

I’d love to share one of my favorite quotes:¬†

“We do not inherit the Earth from out ancestors; we borrow it from our children”

-Native American Proverb
