Lynda Klasky portraitLynda Klasky 520-626-5067
Administrative Assistant, Experiential Education
Ms. Klasky is the backbone of the program. She has been part of experiential education since 1999. If you need anything, she is the best resource. Her main function is to ensure that program runs smoothly. No small task. The amount of paperwork involved from registering students, organizing immunization records, submitting hours to the state board, and processing new preceptor paperwork is monumental. Yet she does it all with a smile.
