Diana Rosenbaum, BSN, RN
I'm excited to have the opportunity to serve, as the new campus nurse, to such a unique school as Live Oak Academy. I'm currently in my 4th year as a school nurse, and have been a nurse for 11 years. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Texas Tech University Health Science Center, wreck 'em tech! Prior to school nursing, my background was in cardiac care in a hospital setting for 3 years, and then an after hours urgent care clinic, for both adults and pediatric patients, for 4 years. My family and I have lived in Buda for the past 11 years. My husband and I have two elementary age rascals that also attend a Hays CISD school. In my spare time I love traveling and exploring with my family (a piece of my heart is at Destin beach in Florida), all things artsy crafty, and music of all sorts. I'm excited for an "owl"some year of health and wellness both mentally and physically with your kiddos. #HCISDPrideBeginsWithYou #LOAknOWLedge
