I am a graduate of Kent State University, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Nursing in 2005. I have worked in the hospital setting for 13 years prior to starting at Mount Vernon City Schools in 2018. My work experience includes Med/Surg, ER, and Cardiology. I received my School Nurse Certification from Ashland University in 2020 and am a current Licensed School Nurse through the Ohio Department of Education. I divide my time between the eight buildings within the Mount Vernon City School District, which includes the high school, middle school, and six elementary schools. We are lucky to have a dedicated health assistant in each building to help in day-to-day clinic care and overall student health.
