Hello! My name is Susan Underwood and I am the Registered Nurse at Red Oak High School. This is my 6th year at Red Oak and my 15th 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 for 6 years. 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 is a sophomore in college and our girls are both seniors in high school. We are active in FFA with one of our children, and if you don't find us at the barn; we can be found at the lake on warm days.
