Welcome to Health Services

Each of our schools has 1-2 registered nurses who provide excellent care to children across the District. Please see the staff directory to contact your building nurse(s) directly.
I have been working in the field of Pediatric nursing almost 15 years. I worked for 6 years as a PICU staff and charge nurse in a Trauma-1 teaching hospital. I also worked ambulance ground transport for 3.5yrs. I went on to work as a PICU assistant director in a smaller community hospital for 1.5yrs. After completing my Masters of Science in Nursing Education, I began teaching as a visiting professor for a national nursing college. That brought me to Round Lake, and at the end of the semester when a position opened, I knew I wanted to stay!
I started my RLAS career as the building nurse at Magee Middle School in 2015. After completing my hearing and vision screening certification, as well as my Professional Educator License with a School Nurse endorsement, I transitioned to the Lead Nurse role. I am currently housed at the Welcome Center, and participate in many medical reviews for IEPs throughout the district, work on policies, and support our wonderful nursing staff. Round Lake’s commitment to staffing at least one full-time nurse in every building every day is something I am very proud of! Supporting the health and well-being of our students and staff is something I am very passionate about!
I have a daughter and a son, a wonderful husband, and a new Labradoddle puppy at home. I love to read/ listen to audiobooks, crotchet, sew, and hang out with my family. I am currently the Marketing/Communications Coordinator for the Illinois Association of School Nurses, and in the fall of 2020 I will become the President-Elect. These positions help me to advocate for the needs of school nurses across the state, and allows me to stay up to date with the best evidence-based school nursing practices.
