    Office Hours: 8am-4:30pm
    Hello! I am excited to be the school nurse at Sycamore Springs Middle School. I have been a registered nurse for 22 years and I truly love it! Before becoming a school nurse, I spent several years working as a nurse in a busy pediatric emergency room.
    My husband (Casey) and I have been married for 24 years and love to call Dripping Springs our home. We have been blessed with three children Lauren, Luke, and Landry. Our two boys are current students at DSISD and our daughter graduated in 2017 and is now loving being a college student. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, watching my favorite sports teams (Go DS Tigers!) and spending time with my family and friends. 
    Please feel free to call or email me with any need to know health conditions or concerns you may have for your SSMS student. I want to partner with you to make sure all of their health needs are being met at school to help have a successful school year. 
    Syc'em Tigers,
    Nurse Reed
