Meet Your Middle School Nurse
Angel Goldberg, RN
“My name is Angel Goldberg, and I have had the privilege of serving as a nurse with the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District since November, 2012. In my time here, I have cared for kids in all grade levels.
I am originally from Jackson, MS but have lived in Maplewood for 20 years. I studied chemistry/polymer science at the University of Southern Mississippi. I then completed my BSN in Nursing at Webster University. For seven years, I was an electronic warfare and avionics specialist in the United States Air Force/Air National Guard. I spent five years as a staff nurse at Oaklawn Hospital in Marshall, MI (3 years as a Med/Surg Telemetry nurse and 2 years in Ambulatory Care). After that, I moved to St. Louis where for nine years, I was an oncology staff nurse at the former St. John’s Mercy Medical Center in Creve Coeur.
When I’m not caring for students and staff, I love spending time with my family, reading, hiking, kayaking, riding my bicycle, and travelling. My favorite thing to do in the world is snorkel! It’s been my pleasure to serve on the Board of LifeBridge Partnership since 2011. I am active in volunteering with people with different abilities, and really enjoy working as a nurse at summer camps. My husband Howard and I have 3 sons (Heath, Josh, and Gabe) who all have attended MRH schools throughout their education. We are grateful to raise our family in such a close knit community. It’s been a fun bonus to watch the children in our community grow up.”
