Hello! My name is Susan Underwood and I am the Registered Nurse at Red Oak High School. The 21-22 school year will be my 9th year at Red Oak and my 18th year as a school nurse. I began my medical career as a medical Social Worker after earning my bachelors in Social Work in 1993 at the University of Texas at Arlington. I worked in that field for 5 years before returning to UTA and earned my bachelors in Nursing in 1998. Prior to school nursing, I worked in a 4 physician Family Practice clinic as a physicians' nurse and the back office supervisor. When my oldest child started kindergarten, I started school nursing and never left. I could not imagine nursing in any other setting. I have worked at all school levels and love high school the most.
On a more personal note, I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2012. We grew up in DeSoto and were friends growing up; but life happens and took us in different directions. After many life lessons, we reconnected, fell in love and got married. Together we have 3 children. Our son just completed his classes at UNT (Yeah for mom and dad) and our oldest daughter (by 2 weeks, lol) is attending Navarro, GO BULLDOGS!. Our youngest daughter is attending Tarleton in Midlothian, GO TEXANS!
