I began to dream of being a school nurse when my children were students at Barton Creek Elementary. The school was new and the earth was young! To prepare myself, I spent ten years as an office nurse for some of Austin's finest pediatricians (Drs. Jack Louis, Mike Bayer, Leighton Ellis and Erica Sharp). I became the school nurse at Eanes Elementary in 2012 and entered the promised land of BCE in 2016. It is a privilege to serve your children. They keep me young and make me laugh! I try to keep them safe, healthy and feeling loved.

I was born in Michigan, raised in Abilene, and moved to Austin in 1974 as a freshman at the University of Texas. I graduated from UT in 1978 with highest honors. I met my husband, Don, at UT and married him in 1980. Hook 'em! Our daughter, Sarah, lives in Austin and runs with Don and friends around Lady Bird Lake. Our son, Collin, his wife, Katie, and their children live in Ft. Worth. My grandchildren are my favorite hobby! I burn through many miles and audiobooks to visit them as often as possible. My parents enjoy gardening, golf and bridge. They live in Lakeway, so we see them often. I have a sweet memory of my mom reading "Ozma of Oz" to me after I hurt myself riding my bicycle, so I keep children's books in the clinic in her honor. I love drinking lattes, knitting my grandchildren's Christmas stockings, making stained glass mosaics, and hiking with Don and our dog, Biscuit.

I welcome your visits, calls and emails. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for your child.
