Meet the Team

Larissa Lyman, School Nurse

Larissa Lyman, RN, BSN

Hi, I'm Nurse Larissa! Physical and mental health are my top priorities! I help students manage their chronic and acute health conditions so they can focus on school. I am passionate about health education and absolutely love teaching prenatal classes. Knowledge is power!! I also do health assessments and refer students to clinics in the community, if needed. Need support with navigating the healthcare system? I'm here! In my spare time, you can find me walking my chihuahua, making pottery, or cooking something delicious!

Wendy, Wellness Coordinator

Wendy Snider, LMFT

Hi, I'm Wendy. I coordinate the Wellness program at Hilltop which, in non Covid times, provides a warm and welcoming space for students to gather and seek support. During distance learning I am working to connect all interested students to counseling and case management services. If you would like to work with a therapist or need help with housing, benefits, parenting concerns or other legal issues, I can make sure to find the right person to support you. If you have an immediate concern or crisis, I am usually available to meet with you right away.

Caya, RAMS therapist

Caya Schaan, ACSW

Hi, I'm Caya. I support students with their emotional health and well being. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to open up about all the ups and downs of life. Pregnancy and early parenting can be both an exciting and challenging time and I'm here to help you find your own unique tools, so you can follow your dreams and goals for yourself and your child(ren). In my spare time, I can be found listening to music, cooking and running around with my 2 children.
