I was born and raised in Columbus Ohio. I attended Worthington Schools then went on to attend school at Ohio Dominican, where I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Education. I subbed for a little bit but decided I wanted to pursue my second love of nursing. I attended Hondros College and completed their LPN to RN program. I have worked at Riverside Methodist hospital and Nationwide Children's Hospital as a RN. I took some time off after my son was born. Once he was in school I applied for a clinic aide position in Olentangy Schools, where I worked the past four years. While working as a clinic aide I completed my School Nurse Certification through OSU. I graduated this past spring. I was hired with Columbus City Schools and was lucky enough to be assigned to St. Joseph. Although this is my first year working as a school nurse I have about 10 years of nursing experience. I am excited for this new nursing opportunity. I currently live in the Columbus area with my Husband, two boys (ages 8 and 3), and our cat Hershey. I enjoy gardening, spending time with my family, and traveling with my family.
