• Hi, and welcome!  I am new to WMHS, and new to school nursing, but I am so excited to be here.  I have been a nurse since 2001, and up until this year, spent my nursing career at Augusta Health primarily in Endoscopy and Gastroenterology.  The great thing about nursing is the wide variety of experiences.

    I am married with two children, two cats, and a dog.  When I am not at work I can be found cheering for my son from the sidelines of the baseball field or taking my teenage daughter shopping.  I am passionate about photography, live music, the sand and sun, my family, and many friends.  Chocolate IS my food pyramid.  I love sappy chick flicks and crime shows.  I also appreciate positive quotes and words of affirmation, and you'll find such scattered throughout my office.

    Please don't hesitiate to reach out to me with questions or concerns regarding your student.  My goal this year and every year is to be healthy and stay healthy.

     

    "Attitude is a choice.  Happiness is a choice.  Optimism is a choice.  Kindness is a choice.  Giving is a choice.  Respect is a choice.  Whatever choice you make makes you.  Choose wisely." ~ Roy T. Bennett
