School Nurse

I entered Onslow County School system in 2002 bringing 19 years of nursing experience. My previous work experience included Med Surg, Urology, Cardiac, Nephrology, Oncology, Emergency, and Pediatrics. I received my national school nurse certification in 2003. Nursing has truly been my passion and my life.  I enjoy working with the kids and their parents. 

Being a parent of an Elementary school child, I myself understand the worries of health and their effects of school age children. Each year I have been in the school system I have seen a rise in the number of health problems among kids. My main role as school nurse is identifying and being available to help these children adapt their lifestyles in today's classroom. Mediating with school personnel and parents the medical needs for the best interest of the child and their education is my number one priority. I am fortunate to be working among the staff of Richlands Primary.
