I am so grateful to call myself the Falcons' school nurse here at Forest Trail Elementary! My name is Amy Gaither and I feel working as a nurse is one of the greatest callings in my life.

I grew up in Southeast Texas, and graduated from Texas A&M with my first bachelor degree in 2007 (WHOOP!). I began work at the bedside in a hospital setting in 2008 in Moscow, Idaho, where my family lived until 2016. I earned my BSN at Lewis Clark State College in 2011, and have since worked in every area of the hospital and, after our move to Austin, at Dell Children's Hospital in the emergency room. I began my nursing adventure here at Forest Trail in 2018.

Matt is my husband and the love of my life. We have two boys, Ransom and Jonas (also Falcons, and rascals!), and as of March 2019 we have our sweet girl Adeline. We love to hike, camp, read, and could build an entire second house from our lego stash!

I count it a huge honor to be able to care for your students here each day, and hope you will always reach out with any questions or concerns.
