Search inside suggests that she does not.  However, since she can
*teach* wizards (that is, Tazendra, and probably the other Lavodes in
the past), well, I nearly think that whatever she is *includes* being
a wizard.

But really, all she needs to do is refer to herself as Sethra Lavode,
and that should say it all, to anyone who knows anything.

(Or psionic.  Whatever.)
