My current ministry is the School Nurse Coordinator at St. Helen School, Newbury, Ohio. This school is a faith-filled community which nurtures spiritual development, promotes academic excellence, and fosters leadership skills.
In this ministry, I am responsible for students from Pre-K through Grade 8. The many years of experiences in the SND healthcare, Light of Hearts Villa and Marymount Village prepared me well for the duties required. Daily needs of the students are what fill my days at St. Helen’s. Whether it is a student who becomes ill, playground and gym class accidents, maintaining student health files or conferring with teachers and parents, I stay busy.
One of the best parts of this ministry is getting to interact with the students. They come to the clinic upset or hurt, yet leave happy often having given me a good laugh. Each day is different. One never knows what may occur.
Daily, I have the opportunity to share God’s goodness, provident care, and compassionate love with the staff, students and parents.
