Welcome to the Nurse's Notes

I am a graduate of Central High School and the University of West Georgia.  I began my nursing career in 2000 and have been a school nurse with Carroll County Schools since 2013.  I am passionate about assisting children manage chronic health conditions and love my job at CES.  I have been married since 1995 and have 3 children who have all attended Central schools.  I love cheering on my lions!  I enjoy hiking, kayaking, scrapbooking, family time, focusing on health and wellness, and serving with teenagers at my church.

I am happy to assist you in meeting your student's health needs while in school.
