SANDRA COVARRUBIAS, VICE CHAIR
Sandra Covarrubias graduated from Casa Loma College for Licensed Vocational Nursing. She has eight years of professional experience as a Vocational Nurse in NorthEast Valley Health Corporation in Canoga Park, CA; Amity Home Health in Granada Hills, CA; Majesty Hospice in Los Angeles, CA; and All Saints HealthCare in North Hollywood, CA as a pediatric nurse.
Her duties included and were not limited to providing nursing care, providing aid in daily living activities, administering medication by all routes, and obtaining assessments to determine the right plan of care for the patients. As a sub acute pediatric nurse, she executed the above duties along with providing care to long term ventilator dependency patients. She went beyond her nursing duties to even comfort patients and families with deteriorating diseases.
During her tenure in the medical field she placed a hold on her studies and retired as nurse due to personal health issues. In that time she devoted full-time to providing the best education opportunities for her son. She became one of the first active parent volunteers for Magnolia Science Academy-2 & 7 and went on to become President of the Parent Task Force (PTF) for Magnolia Science Academy-2. Under her responsibilities she organized special events, coordinated parent volunteers in classrooms/school activities, aided in fundraising efforts through events and programs, and was involved in actively supporting community outreach and networking and building reliable communication networks among parents and teachers. Following suit, more parents joined onboard.
Her son graduated with High Honors from a Magnolia Science Academy school while obtaining his Associates Degree and went on to attend the University of California Los Angeles. Seeing her son be able to succeed fueled her inspiration to continue helping other students obtain resources and opportunities and subsequently joined the Magnolia Public Schools Board of Directors in 2017.
She left a lasting impact at those schools in regards to parent involvement. Advocating the beliefs that parent involvement in a child's life makes a huge difference in ensuring the pathway of educational successes and that love for a child and their families are to always be at the forefront.
