I am so happy to be entering my fourth year as a school nurse and my third year at Lead Academy. I have been a pediatric nurse for over 20 years. I am a Certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner with additional certification as a Pediatric Mental Health Specialist, and a Licensed Social Worker. I am a certified instructor for Mindfulness for Stressed Teens. I love being a part of the Lead Academy family and consider it a privilege to take care of your children while they are at school. I grew up and spent most of my life in Georgia. I graduated from Georgia College (Psychology), Medical College of Georgia (Nursing), Georgia State University (MSN/PNP), and Valdosta State University (MSW). I love school! I moved to Greenville five years ago. I have found that Greenville is an awesome city to live in. I have five girls, two with special needs. My girls and I love the local farmers markets and outdoor music events. I enjoy photography, painting, and am a novice “foodie”.
