Criswell Elementary School nurse



Hi!  I am so excited to be at Criswell Elementary this year.   I graduated from Baylor University in 2004 with a Bachelor's degree in nursing.  This is my 4th year of school nursing.  Prior to school nursing, I took care of children with cancer and blood disorders for 13 years.  I am looking forward to a great year.  Let me know how I can help you!!
