This is my seventh year at Hart Elementary and I feel truly blessed to be a part of the Hart Team. What a great group of kids and staff we have here. School nursing has always been an interest of mine from the moment I graduated nursing school. I attended Texas Tech University School of Nursing and graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) in 2005. Upon graduation, I attended the Parkland ICU internship and began working in the Surgical ICU at UT Southwestern Hospitals (also known as Zale Lipshy Hospital) for my first 2 years. I then moved on to The Heart Hospital at Baylor Plano where I still am currently employed on a PRN basis. I have been with The Heart Hospital for about 11 years working in the Cardiovascular ICU. I have also worked PRN in the Baylor Mckinney ICU, Baylor Grapevine ICU, and also traveled a bit with Nursefinders to various hospitals to broaden my skills. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, boating, running, and serving in the children’s ministry at church. I married my husband, Scott, in 2005 and we have two children. Gavin is in 6th grade at SCIS and Brooklynn is 7 years old and going into 2nd grade here at Hart. Although I have a passion for working in the intensive care environment, I have found a new passion as the school nurse here at Hart. Thank you for sharing your children with us, they are so special.
