"I am committed to improving child health outcomes in our most vulnerable populations through my current practice, advocacy, and teaching. As a school nurse, I am serving as a bridge between the health care and education systems, and other sectors, as well as a link to broader community health issues through the student populations I serve. That continuity of care is why I became a public health nurse."
Three words to describe me:
leader, advocate, innovator
The best part of my job:
serving as a bridge between the health care and education systems and other sectors as well as a link to broader community health issues through the student populations I serve
Something that would surprise others about me:
I have overcome my share of adversities. I gladly share my story if it means that it will positively impact others to passionately pursue their goals despite their barriers.
