Meet The School Nurses
Nurse Kathleen "Cookie" Brooks
My name is Kathleen Brooks, otherwise known as “Nurse Cookie” and I am one of two of the school nurses at Iron Mountain Public Schools. I have been a nurse for over 26 years and joined the Iron Mountain team last fall for the 2020-2021 year. I was educated at Montana State University, the University of Utah, and Northern Alabama University graduating with a Biomedical Science degree and a Bachelor's degree in Nursing followed by a few years of postgraduate study. It is my privilege to work with the compassionate and caring staff and families within the Iron Mountain School District.
My husband, Steve and I have four adult children that grew up in Iron Mountain and graduated from Iron Mountain Public schools. All four are working and studying at various Michigan institutions. In the evenings Steve and I can often be seen walking our black & white dog around town. In the winter we both teach ski lessons at Pine Mountain for the ski school and for the Moving Mountains adaptive program. We also enjoy traveling together to see family and being involved in our church.
I am continually seeking ways to connect with and serve the students of Iron Mountain. Please know that I am available to your children if they need support with health-related issues. I am also available to parents and staff who have questions or concerns. My tentative schedule is posted below. Please be aware that this schedule is flexible depending upon the daily needs of the school and the students. My overall goal is to enhance your child’s educational experience through improved health and personal empowerment.
