School nurseI’m a district nurse for Jeffco Schools. I love it. I have five schools and about 1,800 students. I go from site to site and make sure everybody knows what they’re doing and that the kids are taken care of. I train them and take care of them. Health aides do the day-to-day stuff, but I come in and help them with bigger issues, like diabetes and seizure disorders and tube feeding.I make sure the health aides are comfortable with things, like diabetes care. They do a great job. They don’t have health backgrounds. I don’t miss working in hospitals. I get time off, the kids are great, the staff is awesome, and everybody’s happy when you do something good. It’s just a nice place to work.Adios CaliforniaI’m originally from California. I’ve been here 25 years. People around here were already making Californian jokes back then. I’m from Huntington Beach — it was hard to live out there.My husband and I have been married 25 years — we got married six months after I moved to Colorado. I met him in California and we ended up out here coincidentally. My son Max is 24 and Katie is 21.Rafting, hiking, and koi fishMy family and I rafted the Colorado River last weekend. We like to go tubing down the Platte. I still hike in the mountains, but I don’t ski anymore. It was getting hard for me.I like to garden. I went to the Botanic Gardens today and realized my garden was looking a little sad.I love the fish in my koi pond. My kids tease me that my five fish are my favorite children.
