WHS has a full time on-campus nurse, Christie Pallette.
Christie earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Boise State University and progressed into Pediatric nursing from there. She spent several years working in adult care before completing nursing school, then transitioned to Seattle Children’s Hospital where she specialized in Orthopedic, Neurosurgical, Otolaryngolocial, Craniofacial and general surgery recovery. Christie was also a charge nurse and spend time working with Cardiac and Solid Organ Transplant patients also. Before leaving Children’s, she elected to spend several months in the Float pool and spent time working with Medical patients, including those with diabetes and acute respiratory illnesses, and Hematology/Oncology patients. Christie was very fortunate to spend time with many types of children working through various medical conditions and this has helped her in her role here at Woodinville High School.
Christie says her true love has always been community nursing, and she especially loves focusing on the adolescent population as they are in such a pivotal time of life. We look forward to working with you and your child as he or she transitions through high school and into the “real” world!
