Read Chris’s Bio:
I grew up in St. Louis. When I was 4 years old, I told my parents I was going to be “a nurse for little kids.” I’m not sure how I knew what that even was!
I graduated from DePauw University’s School of Nursing in 1987. I first worked in a busy ER at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, which was an excellent experience, but I found I missed finding out what happened to people who’d been in that accident or had that heart attack. I went to work in home health care in the small town where we had moved as newlyweds in 1987, Crawfordsville, IN. I enjoyed long-term relationships with patients and working so independently.
When it became apparent we were going to continue to live in this small town, I became aware of school nursing and it opened the door for me to finally be a nurse for kids! I’ve been with the school system for 20 years now.
