I am the proud nurse for Sheldon Elementary School where I have been honored to care for the
children for the past 5 years. I have been a nurse for 15 years and I have worked with family practice
and OB/GYN. I grew up just down Sheldon Road and have traveled the world, but I have been lucky
enough to settle down with my little family back here in Texas. I have two beautiful girls, both in
Sheldon ISD and a wonderful, supportive husband.
My hobby is photography and traveling. I love taking pictures of children and seniors and watching
their little faces as they meet new challenges in their lives. I am honored to be a part of so many
lives and hope that I can make a small difference in your child's life.
