After completing my RN degree way back in 1986, I worked for four years as a hospital floor nurse and as a nurse with the American Red Cross. I then took a long break in order to raise my four children. After reactivating my nursing license in 2008, I began working for the Abilene ISD. My first year was spent filling in as a substitute school nurse wherever I was needed throughout the school district. That was followed by a year at Craig Middle School where I worked with the special education students. I am currently in my fourth year at my dream job here at the Jefferson Center.
