• Meet Our School Nurse

    I am excited to return as the nurse of such an amazing school. I have been the school nurse at FDES since our doors opened in 2002. I was born and raised in Charleston, SC and have lived here my entire life. I graduated from The Medical University of South Carolina, College of Nursing and have always worked in Pediatrics. My background includes Behavioral Medicine, Cystic Fibrosis, Orthopedics, and Neurology.


    I currently live in Summerville with my husband, kids, and 2 long-haired dachshunds. Between the 2 of us we have 6 children, 3 of whom attend Dorchester School District Two Schools...a 12th grader, 11th grader, 10th grader. When I'm at work at FDES I consider everyone here family; which includes, approximately 150 employees and 1000 students.

    I look forward to another great year at FDES!!!
