Hope was raised on a farm in Texas, went to college in Tennessee, and has lived in South Carolina for the past 20 years. Her 1st degree in biology came from Rhodes College, her masters in botany from Texas A&M University, and her nursing (BSN) from the Medical University of South Carolina. Being outdoors has always made her happy. Gardening, hiking, swimming, camping, identifying plants, walking dogs, and berry picking are some ways that Hope enjoys being out. She taught biology in high school and at college before going back to school to become a nurse. She started in cardiac nursing, but switched to school nursing several years ago. As a camp nurse, she loves being able to combine nursing with camp life! GRP provides the wonderful setting and beautiful people. Looking forward to this summer!
