Parents,

I truly love the opportunity to work with your students and to be a School Nurse for the Park City School District. Our goal for your children is to keep them healthy, engaged and to provide preventive health measures throughout their academic career. Together, we seek opportunities to collaborate among all grade levels in an effort to meet the needs of those we serve. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns about our practices or your individual student.

Thank you!
