These action plans can also be sent to school once you receive them.

Meet Your Elementary School Nurse
"Hello, hello! Thank you for trusting us with the health and safety needs of your student(s) and the MRH community as a whole. I started my nursing career in St. Louis after graduating from the University of Missouri - Sinclair School of Nursing (M-I-Z!!) with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of Health Science from the School of Health Professions. My first three years of nursing were spent at Missouri Baptist Medical Center, where I continue to work per diem, as a staff nurse. My school nursing career started by subbing for MRH and area school districts before signing on with MRH Elementary in 2017.
My roots are in Richmond Heights where I grew up and my family lives. My parents were both educators before retiring, so being in a school environment just feels right. My favorite part of being a school nurse is watching your sweet students walk through our doors as third graders and a few short years later walk out the door (much taller) on their way to middle school. Partnering with you to keep your student(s) healthy and happy is my number one goal."
