President’s Welcome

Welcome to the Virginia Association of School Nurses!

I have been a member for 20 years and now am honored to have the trust of my fellow members to lead this outstanding organization.  On behalf of the Executive Committee and the Executive Board we are honored to serve as your organization leadership. This is an exciting time of challenges, growth and opportunities for VASN.

During my tenure we will continue to enhance networking opportunities, strategic solutions, and expand our member services.  We will continue to advocate for our profession on legislative affairs, increase our visibility in the community, and incorporate breakout sessions and panel discussions in our Executive Committee meetings.  We will continue to recognize our membership for their contribution to promoting and advancing School Health through our appreciation events.

Let us together pledge to make the upcoming year one of record growth in membership and further opportunities for training our members. I look forward to leading us in this exciting, challenging time and ask you to join me and the leadership to make Virginia Association of School Nurses the standard in our business.

I would appreciate hearing from you and encourage you to reach out to me at or speak with me at one of our meetings.  You are critical to the continued success of the VASN. Through volunteering together, we can build a stronger and more influential organization.
