Kenia Lara, B.A.
Kenia, pronounced Kenya, like the country, is originally from Southern California, specifically the Orange County area, where she was born and raised. She moved to Las Vegas just as the quarantine hit in March of 2020.
Having attended Estancia High School in Costa Mesa, Kenia went on to attend the University of California, where she obtained her B.A in Social Ecology.
Having worked at a hands-on behavior school as Behavior Interventionist, the UCI-Law School for Student Affairs, and Laurus College in their Admissions department, Kenia has now joined the NCC family as part of our Academic Affairs team.
Passionate about education and helping people, Kenia really enjoys working with students and assisting them with their goals even if it just means being a sounding board so they have someone to vent to.
For Kenia, the best thing about working at Northwest Career College is how genuine and positive everyone here is. Everyone is passionate about helping and encouraging others.
In her spare time, Kenia can be found working out, peloton rides with friends, reading, game nights, re-watching a few of my favorite shows, visiting my family in SoCal, and exploring the city with her boyfriend, Daniel.
