It's that easy!
I was raised in a small town in seacoast New Hampshire with my brother. I attended grade school there, and later high school at Coe-Brown Northwood Academy. I received my bachelor's degree in nursing from Saint Joseph's College in southern Maine and hold RN licenses in Maine. I started my career as a school nurse at two elementary schools in New Hampshire.
In August of 2013, I married my husband, Jacob who is a Chief Engineer in the Merchant Marines. He is originally from the central Maine area, and our search for a home led us to Readfield, a place we love to call home with our dog Scout. Since the fall of 2013, I have been the school nurse at the Albert S. Hall School in Waterville.
In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors. Some of my favorite activities include swimming, kayaking, snowboarding, gardening, and walking in the woods. I also like baking, knitting and spending time with my family. I am excited to start in my new role as the school nurse at MCHS and very much look forward to meeting the students, staff, their families and members of the community.

Have you noticed that your child is having difficulties with friends, seems sad or may be struggling with school related anxiety? Do you wish you could help but don’t know how?
Maranacook is fortunate to have two fully licensed clinical social workers available during the school day to provide ongoing counseling services for students having challenges with their mental health. These confidential services are provided by Kennebec Behavioral Health through the School Based Health Center.
If you think that these services may be helpful for your child, please contact Sandy Hunter, the school nurse at 685-4923 x 1033.
Do you have any spare backpacks hanging in a closet somewhere? Are you replacing your child’s backpack for this coming school year, and looking to get rid of the old backpack?
Please consider donating used backpacks to the Maranacook Food Pantry at the high school.
We send home food to middle and high school students in need and the easiest, most secure way to transport food items is in a backpack. If you can donate any, please drop them off at the high school office, or leave them at the school health center.
We appreciate any help you can give us!
We are working to help students and their families cope with unmet needs for food and clothing throughout the school year. Our aim is to provide good quality, clean used clothing, as well as basic easy-to-prepare food items (canned soups & fruit, breakfast cereals, pasta & tomato sauce), which will provide some comfort and support so that students can concentrate on their academic responsibilities.
Young people concerned with the basic issues of hunger and access to suitable clothing cannot easily address classroom activities and assigned homework. We hope to help ease their distraction a bit through giving them access to our Boutique and Pantry in order to make them comfortable and help free them to learn.
If you do know of a student who could use some help, please encourage that child to contact us. We’ll be glad to help. For clothing or food needs, please contact our school nurse, Sandy Hunter, @ 685-4923 ext. 1033.
There are many ways to make a tax-deductible donation!
