Degrees and Certifications:
Patrice has been a nurse for over 30 years! She is certified as a pediatric nurse practitioner and has worked in local emergency rooms, pediatric intensive care and pediatric practices- caring for children. The role of a school nurse has been a dream of hers, as two of her four children have life threatening food allergies and chronic illnesses. She feels that this experience as a mother caring for her children and sending them off to school has been a great asset to her role as a school nurse. Patrice enjoys running, yoga, taking her dog for long walks and trying to survive through the turbulent teen years of her youngest at home. She has a special interest in caring for all aspects of the child here at King Elementary and strives to make sure all are happy and healthy..
