Secondary School Nurse

Biography

I am currently in my 4th year nursing here at the junior high/high school. I graduated from MNW in 1999. I attended UNI for 2 years with the intent of becoming a teacher. Life took me on a different path, but I went back to school for nursing in 2005. I now have over 12 years of nursing experience in various specialties. 

I want to be a resource for students, parents, and staff. I have an open-door policy, but rest assured all information will be kept confidential! Please call, email, or stop in my office with any questions or needs.
