I am excited to be starting my second year as the school nurse here at Sharon Elementary. I have had children in this school over the last 13 years and we have 3 years more to go! I have a very big love for this school and it’s incredible teaching staff!
I obtained a bachelor of science in nursing from The Ohio State University and have been a nurse for 23 years. I have worked in many different settings including labor and delivery, medical-surgical, and cardiology.
I am originally from Ohio, but have lived in Georgia for the past 13 years. I have been married for almost 23 years and have 4 awesome, crazy kids. I have 1 daughter headed off to her first year at UGA, a sophomore daughter at Lambert High School, a 6th grade daughter at SFMS and 3nd grade son here at Sharon.
I am certified in adult and pediatric first aid/CPR/AED, and I am a member of the Georgia Association of School Nurses (GASN).
I am super excited to be working with your children. I am dedicated to the health and well being of the students here at Sharon to facilitate an optimal learning environment.
If you have a student with a chronic health needs please stop by the clinic during open house in August to discuss the health needs for your student or contact me during the school year at any time.

Here's a reminder of Forsyth County School's policy on medications:
- Students are not permitted to bring medications to school (including simple things, such as cough drops).They must be brought in by a parent and the proper paperwork completed. I am able to keep over the counter meds, such as tylenol, etc. if brought in by parents.
- Medications that need doctors’ orders are: any prescription medication that needs to be given longer than a 2 week period, and any over the counter medication that is to be given on a daily basis.
- If a student has a chronic condition requiring medical intervention, an action plan needs to be completed and signed by the doctor.
- Parents/guardians need to bring all medications to school, in original containers, with doctor’s orders if applicable.
- Medications must be signed into the clinic. (This procedure must be followed, for medications to be administered).
- In accordance with Forsyth County Policy, the school clinic does not provide any medications for students.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
We want to maintain a safe school, and maintaining proper procedure regarding medications is absolutely essential.
