Nurse

This is my fourth year with FWISD and I am so excited to be a part of the Kirkpatrick family!  I love working with your children and taking care of their health needs.  I earned my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Texas Woman’s University.   I love to spend time with my husband Craig and our daughter Natalie (freshman at TCC).  I enjoy reading, swimming, going to baseball games, and UNT football!
