Hi! I’m Nurse Amelia, and I am the school nurse for Colstrip Public School District. This is my third year working for our district. I was born and raised in California, and moved to Montana in 2013. I love children, and am blessed to have two of my own. I graduated from California State University, Bakersfield in 2008 with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I have worked in a medical-surgical unit, an intensive care unit, and a family birth center.
I love nursing for the variety it provides. I have always said I would love to be a school nurse, and here I am! I am very happy to be here in Colstrip, and have felt very welcomed by everyone I have met. Feel free to stop in my office and say hello when you get a chance, I would love to meet you!
