My name is Becky and I absolutely love being a school nurse. I am very dedicated to doing all that I can to help keep everyone that enters Hanawalt as safe and healthy as possible. As a Registered Nurse, I’ve had the privilege of working in many different health settings, but school nursing is by far my favorite. I grew up in Des Moines and now live just on the outskirts of town, enjoying the country life. My husband and I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two well-loved dogs. Spending time with family and being outdoors are my top favorite things to do. Please email or call me with any school topics that are health related; I’ll try my best to help any way that I can. Looking forward to a great school year!
