Hello, my name is Stephanie LeSieur-Byrnes and I teach Medical Science III and Aventa here at Health Professions High School. I have been here for 9 years and teaching for 10. I have a Bachelors degree in Health Science, a CTE credential in Health and Medicine, a CNA certificate, and am a certified instructor for the American Red Cross. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 6 years and have a one year old little boy and a four year old little girl.
My name is Deborah Meltvedt and I teach Medical Science 10 and Medical Science 12. I have been a teacher at HPHS since it opened in 2005. In past years, I have been the Work Based Learning Coordinator in which I helped students connect with experiences in health care in the “real world.” I love teaching about all facets of health and medicine, especially behavioral and mental health. I also am advisor to the Creative Writing Club, HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America), and the women’s running club.
My name is Keith Wohlwend and I will be teaching Medical Biology and Sports Medicine. This will be my first year at HPHS and I’m excited to bring my scholastic, entrepreneurial, athletic, and medical experiences into the classroom. I graduated from San Francisco State University with a BA in Psychology, and an MA in Kinesiology: Exercise Science. While I was there I won several collegiate conference championships in shot put and discus, including a 3rd place at the 1999 NCAA Division II National meet that earned me All-American status and set the shot put record at SFSU.
