Degrees and Certifications:
This is my first year at Hickory Ridge High and my second year as a school nurse and I have been a nurse for 29 years. I worked 25 years at Atrium Cabarrus and then became a travel nurse, which was very exciting until COVID. I also taught Health Sciences in high school for 6 years - one at Central Cabarrus, the rest at Robinson.
I grew up in Cabarrus County and am a product of Northwest Cabarrus High School. I live in Concord with my husband and 3 sons that are almost grown, but not out of the house yet! Andrew 23, Noah 19, and Seth 19. We have 4 dogs and 1 cat - Cooper a goldendoodle; Daisy, Petie, and CrackerJack are all Jack Russell dogs; Axel the wild cat! For fun, I like to camp, spend time at the beach, binge Netflix-always looking for my next thing to watch. I'm a reality show junkie as well.
I'm happy to be at The Ridge. Being an employee of the Cabarrus Health Alliance, I get the latest information about COVID and CDC reccomendations related to it. I also work at vaccine clinics and COVID testing sties as needed. Let's get vaccinated and put a hault to COVID and Delta Variant....it's our best option to save lives!
