I have been at Roosevelt High School since 2012. I have worked in the Minneapolis Public Schools since 2002 starting in elementary schools. From 2005 through 2012, I was a City wide resource school nurse, working in various health offices around the District, and assisting nurses with the special education process.  

Educational background: I received my BA at the College of St. Catherine, St. Paul in Nursing in 1986. I completed a MS in Nursing In 2001, in the Pediatric Nurse Practitioner program with a focus in Children With Special Health Care Needs at the U of MN, Twin Cities.

Prior to working as a school nurse I had worked at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare since 1991, and continue to work there on casual basis during the time off in the summers.
