Hello Pirates! I wanted to let you know a little about my background and how I came to the school setting. I knew from the time I was five years old that I wanted to be a nurse. Of course, it took me a while to get the RN behind my name. I graduated from Eastern Kentucky University in May of 2000 with a Baccalaureate in Nursing. After graduating, I worked at my hometown hospital in Kentucky. I married my best friend in 2001 and then we had our first child in 2002. My husband, a teacher, and I have two boys, one girl, one fur baby and two fish. We moved to North Carolina to have better teaching opportunities for my husband. I fell in love with this county. I was able to work at Onslow County Health Department and get to know the area and many of the people. My husband starting teaching and my kids began attending Onslow County Schools. I was able to connect and start to volunteer in the school system. I worked in the Intensive Care Unit on the weekends and loved being in the schools during the week. I realized I wanted to help these students attain their learning goals safely and I was directed to school nursing. Leaving the bedside was difficult, but in 2018 I was welcomed into the school system to work as a school nurse. It has been a interesting start with Hurricaine Florence and COVID-19. These events have made me realize even more that I love being a nurse. Each year that I am surrounded by incredible staff, students, and families encourages me to learn, have increased understanding and be more compassionate.
