What I love about my job:
I have 15 years of health care experience caring for people in areas from pediatrics, family practice/urgent care, labor and delivery, and oncology. I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner but first and foremost I am a nurse. I love everything about being a nurse. I love caring for people and being able to teach and educate. I love the variety of people I see and that no day is ever the same. I love that I can expand my knowledge and that health care is constantly growing and changing.
Why I chose Riverside:
I am so blessed that I get to be a part of the Riverside School District. I have wanted to be a School Nurse since I was in undergraduate nursing school. I love working with children and being able to educate not only them but also their families. I also plan to teach some health care courses to prepare our high schoolers for their future goals.
What makes me PROUD to be a Bulldog:
I am proud to become a Bulldog because of the support and openness my family and myself have received since joining this community. I hope I can welcome families to the district as others have done to us. I am honored to be able to help care for the children of Riverside School District.
