I'm Ms. Matheny, Ms. Carrie, Ms. M, or Ms. C. I am in my first year at Havelock High School teaching Health Sciences in the Career and Technology Education Program (CTE). Amazing!! GO RAMS!!About me: I am a Registered Nurse with 16 years experience in a variety of settings from birth to end of life and everything in between. I worked as a travel nurse for nearly 10 years across the United States in my "vintage' camper. I've been in Havelock for a couple of years now and enjoy the area. I love being close to the beach, but still near the woods!!
Before I was a nurse, I was a teacher and family advocate focused in early childhood development, birth through 2nd grade.In my career as an RN, I licensed initially with my A.S.Nursing and began work while I continued my education and completed my B.S.N. Just before COVID I had begun furthering my education in an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse program to obtain my Master's degree in Nursing. However life sometimes alters your path and that is currently on hold, but I hope to complete my degree in the near future! I'm so close!!!My favorite things to do are spending time with my son, daughter-in-law and grandkids, hanging out with my goofy, but very sweet, large dog, going to the beach, (or any water), reading, singing karaoke, cruises, and traveling!
I am excited to broaden my scope as a Registered Nurse and get to know you and the Havelock community.
