Rachel Graves, RN
Hello and welcome. My name is Rachel Graves and I am happy to serve as the building nurse for the WCC. The Army brought my family to Fort Leonard wood in 2018 from which my husband has since retired and we have now made this area our home. Brian and I are blessed with two children. We have enjoyed exploring all that Missouri has to offer and meeting the wonderful people here.
I have been a nurse since 2011 when I received my AAS in Nursing, and more recently completed my BSN. My experience in nursing has been primarily community and school nursing, to include juvenile probation. After moving to the area I began as a substitute nurse and teacher for the district until landing at Freedom Elementary for the last two years. I am excited to be at the WCC and to have the opportunity to assist with the Health Science program.
I enjoy working in the school environment because I believe in supporting education. Albert Einstein said that, "Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." Empowering our students with the skills to think critically will help them adapt and overcome no matter which path they take when they have finished their time in school. The best way to accomplish this is with students that are healthy, well nourished and loved. I believe as a team we can support our students in these ways and be successful together.
Please feel free to contact me via phone or email with any questions or concerns.
