The nurses in our school



The mission of Rockford Health Services is to promote health and wellness among our students and assist them in reaching their health and academic potential.


Who are your nurses? 

Heather Simonson- Elementary School Nurse

Hi, my name is Heather and I am the nurse at the elementary school. My husband and I are from northern Minnesota. We have lived in Rockford since 2007 with our two daughters. I have worked at REAMS since 2015 - 3 as a para and in the health office since 2018. I enjoy watching my daughters dance, reading, and taking my dog, Mister, on walks.

Natalie Braun- Middle School Nurse

Hello!  My name is Natalie and I am the nurse at the middle school.  I have been a nurse since 2015 and have experience in geriatrics, family practice and emergency medicine.  I've been with Rockford Area Schools since 2020 and loved it!  When I'm not working, my kids and I like to spend weekends outside hiking, camping, exploring new state parks and swimming in the summer.

Becca Morgan- District and High School Nurse

Hello Rockford community! I'm Becca and I'm the district and high school nurse. I grew up in Pipestone, Minnesota, as did my husband, Chris. We have 3 children who attend Rockford Area Schools. I went to nursing school in Sioux Falls and began my career in Pediatrics and the NICU but began school nursing in 2006 and never looked back. I went back to school in 2011 and got my Master of Science in Nursing Education and have worked for RAS since 2015. I have many hobbies because I prefer to stay busy, these include reading, gardening, walking, going to "hippie festivals" (as my husband calls them), and dancing.

All three of us love working for RAS and we love being nurses to your children. The last couple of years have been especially trying for everyone, but we are thankful that we belong to this community!
