Welcome! I am the school nurse at East Belfast and Kermit Nickerson schools. I earned my bachelor's degree at Husson College and have been a nurse for almost 14 years. My nursing experience includes 10 years as an emergency room nurse as well as pediatric triage in an office setting and substituting for school nurses in other districts. I am very excited to join the RSU 71 team this year as the school nurse! Please feel free to contact me by phone or e-mail with any questions or concerns.
