Meet your Nurse:
School nursing is my second nursing career and I have enjoyed this role since 1999. Previously, I was employed for 10 years as a Clinical Nurse Specialist in Neuroscience Nursing. I am married with 3 grown children. I'm a CPR instructor for the AHA, a certified yoga instructor for both adults and children, a lector and wedding coordinator in my church, and I sing in the choir.  

It is my strong belief that wellness impacts learning. Our school works in cooperation with the OJR Wellness Council, which is funded primarily by a grant from the Pottstown Health and Wellness Foundation. Together we strive to teach our students and families to be Fit for Life by promoting Nutrition, Activity, Social & Emotional fitness, as well as Tobacco Avoidance and Sun Safety. We welcome parents and staff to engage in our wellness efforts.

It is my privilege to care for your children. If you have any questions regarding the health and wellness services, please contact me at or 610-469-5182.
