Hello!  My name is Jamie Head, and I'm thrilled to say this is my 4th year teaching health science. I have been nursing for 21 years. I began my nursing career as a CNA and worked as a CNA during nursing school. I currently work at Frye Regional Medical Center as well as the Iredell-Statesville School System.

I grew up in Alexander County and graduated from Alexander Central in 1995. I graduated with an Associates of Science in Nursing from Forsyth Technical Community College in 2004.

I enjoy spending time at the beach, watching my boys play sports, and spending time with my family.
