Nurse Kelly Driver

Kelly Driver

I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1979 with my bachelors of science in nursing.  Throughout my nursing career I have been fortunate to work as a registered nurse in cardiac and neurological intensive care units as well as, home health. However, for the past nineteen years I have worked as a school nurse consultant for the Douglas County School District - I have loved having the opportunity to empower youth to overcome their individual barriers to health.  Over the past three years I have been a diabetes resource nurse for DCSD.  Working as a resource nurse, I have been fortunate to team with the Colorado Kids with Diabetes Consortium as well as, fellow Colorado diabetes resource nurses to improve the care of student’s with diabetes in the school setting.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my priceless family, skiing, ranching, and chasing that little white ball around (i.e. golfing).  My job depicts my true passion - improving the lives and health independence of the youth in DCSD.
