About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Mulvane High School in 1992.  I attended Wichita VoTech, where I earned my CNA and LPN.  In 2002, I graduated from Butler County Community College with an Associate in Applied Arts and obtained my Registered Nurse license.  I graduated from Southwestern College, earning my bachelor's degree in Nursing.  I resumed my educational journey in 2020 at the University of Kansas.  I am now at the University of St. Marys in Leavenworth, anticipating graduation in 2024 from the Family Nurse Practitioner program.  

Degrees and Certifications:


Certified CPR/First Aid Instructor

Current Position:

My nursing background is varied.  I have worked in home health, long-term care, emergency medicine, critical care, and the immediate care environment.  The experience I earned in all these genres helps me daily in my present position as a school nurse.


I started my career at USD 402 in 2009.  I have been the school nurse at Garfield and Robinson since that time.  I am also looking forward to caring for Lincoln elementary students.    

Family Information:

My husband Ryan and I were married on December 31, 1995.  We are the proud parents of four children who have attended or presently attend Augusta schools. Our oldest son was born in 1998, our only daughter in 2001, the second son in 2003, and a final son in 2006. In addition, we gained a fantastic daughter-in-law in 2019. We’re also the proud parents of three fur babies, two dogs, and one cat.  

Personal Information:

In my spare time, I am an avid reader.  I also enjoy camping and fishing.  My two favorite places are the family farms in Iowa and Missouri.
