Welcome to the Woodward Health Office. Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or concerns. I am available at the school Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 3:30 pm. If I am not in the Health Office, you can leave a message on my voicemail or send an email at any time. I appreciate and welcome your input regarding the safety, health and well being of our students.

As your child’s school nurse, I am here to assist each student in attaining and maintaining a healthy physical, emotional, and social attitude so they may reach their full potential. This is accomplished through collaboration with the classroom teachers, physical education teachers, guidance counselors, student support services, nutrition services, the parents, the principal and myself. With all of us working together, we can help our students achieve healthy bodies, healthy minds and healthy attitudes.

School nursing is a specialized practice of nursing that protects and promotes student health, facilitates optimal development, and advances academic success. School nurses, grounded in ethical and evidence-based practice, are the leaders who bridge health care and education, provide care coordination, advocate for quality student-centered care, and collaborate to design systems that allow individuals and communities to develop their full potential.
