I have served as the school nurse at Happy Valley since 2020. Prior to moving to Caldwell County in 2019, I lived in Asheville for 6 years and worked in the hospital setting. I grew up in the Winston-Salem area and received my nursing degree from Western Carolina University. 



I am usually at Happy Valley on Tuesdays. In addition, I also serve William Lenoir Middle and Kings Creek. Since I serve several schools, the fastest way to reach me is via email or calling/texting my school cell phone.
