School Nurse


Anita joined Congressional School in 2016 as our school nurse.

Anita originally started her career working for a defense contractor back in the mid-80’s.  After her second child was born, she left work to stay home with her family. While Anita was home she also attended nursing school at Northern Virginia Community College and became a Registered Nurse.  During her nursing career she has worked as a floor nurse at INOVA Fairfax, in a physician’s office assisting with clinical trials, and then about 7 years ago she began working in school health.

In her free time, Anita enjoys traveling to visit her four children and two grandchildren.  When she’s not visiting family, she enjoys spending time at the beach, running/walking, gardening, and reading.


“I enjoy working with all of the children (infant-8th grade!) and the staff at Congressional. When I look back at all of the places I have worked, I can truly say that I have enjoyed my time at Congressional the most.”
