About Our Nurses
I have been a registered nurse since 2002 and have enjoyed working at the Sanford clinic and on the med/surge and OB units in the Sanford Worthington Hospital, but since have found my passion to be school nursing. I have been contracted to the Worthington School District from the Sanford Clinic since 2006. Each year is new an exciting, there is never a dull day in the health office! My husband and our 3 children live in Worthington. We enjoy camping, walking, sports, and spending time with family and friends.
As the school nurse keeping children healthy is my mission because “healthy kids are better learners”. Immunizations, medication administration, hearing and vision screening, health education, and wellness promotion are my part to keeping our school a healthy place to learn and grow. When a child comes into the health office be assured they will be given the best care we can to get them back to class or when necessary, home to you.
I started my career in health care field in 2005 at Sanford’s Critical Care unit in Sioux Falls as a Medical Secretary. I then continued my education and graduated from Minnesota West in 2011 with my Associates in Nursing. My First nursing job was at Sanford Orthopedics in Worthington moving into Pediatrics in 2013 where I found my love working with children. In 2018, I got the great opportunity to become a School Nurse for district 518. I am full time between the Learning Center, Prairie Elementary, Early Childhood, St. Mary’s and the Worthington Christian School. I am grateful to get to work with the different age groups and help promote healthy living as well assisting them when they are not feeling well.
My husband, three kids and I live in Lismore. We stay busy running the kids to figure skating and wrestling practices, events as well and my husband owning his own business. We also enjoy camping in the summers.
