Getting to Know SDCOE: Lindsay Sullivan

Getting to Know SDCOE: Lindsay Sullivan
Lindsay Sullivan profile

Lindsay Sullivan epitomizes the San Diego County Office of Education's North Star goal of reducing income disparity.  

As a student transition technician working at several Juvenile Court and Community Schools sites, she provides options and experiences that allow students to see themselves as capable and prepared to excel after high school on a path toward a rewarding, high-paying career.  

“Examples of Lindsay’s work mirroring this goal are accompanying students on college tours, providing job experiences with places like the San Diego Fire Department, and meeting students on campus to help them navigate their college roster once accepted,” said Alicia McBride, who works with her.

Sullivan also supports families and colleagues when she can, often connecting with families outside of typical hours to fit in with their busy schedules.  

“I strongly believe her leadership skills, service commitment, and outgoing personality have earned trust with many of our students, so they are willing to accept the guidance needed for them to succeed,” said Octavio Leal, a counselor at Cuyamaca College.


Getting to Know SDCOE is a regular feature at that highlights the important work of different members of the team.
