School Nurse

As the nurse for the Ferndale Area School District, I want to make all the parents and students of our district feel confident and comfortable when health issues arise. I came to Ferndale in August of 2005 with 24 years of hospital nursing experience, with the last 14 years in intensive care.

I work in collaboration with our administration, guidance departments, family support, SAP teams (student assistance program), and the teachers. I am responsible for the day to day health and wellness needs of the students of our district. I make every attempt to keep parents informed when their child is sick or injured. I administer medications both prescription and non- prescription following the districts medication policies and the PA. Nurse Practice Act.

I am available Monday through Friday from 7:30-10:00AM at the Junior-Senior High and from approximately 10:30AM-3:00PM at the Elementary School.

I welcome all parents to feel free to contact me any time there is a question , concern, or new information regarding your child’s medical needs.
