• About Me:

    I am a 2012 Riverside graduate! I hold a Bachelors of Science in Nursing degree from Wilkes University (2016) with a minor in dance. (Yes, I am a dancing nurse and have done research with dance therapy and its affects on decreasing fall risks within the elderly population). I have completed multiple clinical rotations including pediatrics, intensive care, telemetry, medical surgical, psychiatric, labor & delivery, emergency room and nursing home settings. I found a love for taking care of children and pursued a career in neonatal intensive care. I have worked for Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA in the Neontal Intensive Care Unit for 1.5 years before accepting the position as the Registered Nurse at Riverside Elementary East in 2017. I continue to work part time in the NICU in Danville. I am a registered nurse with basic life support training, neonatal resuscitation program certification, Pennsylvania Student Assistance Program training K-12 and am a member of the Elementary SAP team, Tier 2 Behavioral Coordinator, & a member of the positive behavior team. I am looking forward to an exciting and healthy school year! Go Vikes! 

    I will be performing state mandated screenings throughout the school year: Height/weight (3rd-6th), Vision (3rd-6th), Hearing (3rd), Dental (3rd), Scoliosis/Physicals (6th). Parents/Guardians will be notified of results. Please use the tabs on the left hand side to access helpful information throughout the school year, including dental/physical forms and medication administration consent forms.
