This is my thirteenth year at Cedar Creek Elementary, and I've loved every minute of it. I've been a Nurse for 31 years. I've worked in a variety of settings including Postpartum and High Risk Antepartum, Pediatric and Newborn Nursery, Adult and Pediatric Psychiatric Acute Care, Community Health, and Early Childhood Intervention. I have 2 kids of my own. My son, Matthew, is 27 years old, and completed his Masters in Computer Science at Texas A&M University. He is currently working in IT at American Express in Phoenix , Arizona. My daughter, Samantha, is 30 years old and is a kindergarten teacher at Highland Park Elementary School in Austin. My husband, John, is a Polymer Chemist at Texas Research Institute, and heads their Materials Division. My goal as your School Nurse is to keep the students safe, healthy, and educated with knowledge and awareness about their own health and wellness needs. I love working with your kids, and welcome any questions or concerns you may have about your child. Feel free to contact me any time.
