    Carrie Petsinger--District Licensed School Nurse
    Phone:  507-417-2606     cpetsinger@nrheg.k12.mn.us
    I grew up in Austin, MN and graduated with an Associate in Arts and Licensed Practical Nurse Diploma in 2004 from Riverland Community College. Once I knew nursing was my passion, I went on to complete MSU-Mankato’s nursing program in 2009. After graduation, I worked in a hospital and clinic setting. I started at NRHEG in 2016. My husband is an NRHEG graduate. We have a son and 3 daughters. I enjoy working with students to educate them about their body and how injury and illness affect them.

    Linda Bergstrom--LPN
    Phone:  507-417-2606     lbergstrom@nrheg.k12.mn.us
    I was born and raised in SE Minnesota. I had a calling in high school and knew I wanted to be in the health field. I have worked as a medical secretary, certified nursing assistant and LPN over the last several years with a diverse population of clients/patients. Working as a nurse in a school setting has been a dream of mine. I raised three children and am blessed with ten grandchildren (so far). My husband and I live in Clarks Grove and we currently have two spoiled fur babies at home.

    Crystal Studier--Health Office Assistant
    Elementary Health Office
    Phone:  507-416-2105     cstudier@nrheg.k12.mn.us
    I live in Clarks Grove with my husband, Grady, and our four children. Gage (21), Morgan (12), Eli (10) and Boedy (8).  I LOVE camping, chocolate, and animals (Especially our dog, Winnie).

    I enjoy working in the elementary health office for many reasons. I was a stay-at-home mom for ten years. Before that, I was in the medical field, so the elementary health office is a PERFECT fit for me.  I like working with kids and their families, it is very rewarding.  I feel at home in the elementary school with the students and staff I am with.   I will always have my door open to everyone no matter what the issue is, health related or not.  If you don’t know me, please stop in and see me, I would love to be your friend.
