Mrs. Courtney Hicks, R.N.

My name is Courtney Hicks, and I am so happy to be the new school nurse here at Meadow Park Elementary. I have lived in Charlotte County my entire life and attended Charlotte County Schools from Pre-K through 12th. I have been a Licensed Practical Nurse for 7 years, specifically working with pediatrics, until I became a school nurse.

My husband, Matt, and I have 2 amazing kids - Matthew, who is almost 12 years old, and Avery, who is 9 years old. They keep us on our toes, between scouts and dancing, but we wouldn't have it any other way. My favorite things to do in my free time are reading and going on adventures with my husband and kids (like boating, camping, etc!). I'm looking forward to a great school year!
