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.

Nurse Jenna Rossato
My name is Jenna Rossato, I am a school nurse at Iron Mountain Public Schools. I started in January 2022, as I am new to the area. I have been living in Marquette, MI for the past 8 years. I grew up in the metro Detroit area and moved to the UP after high school. My husband is from Norway, MI and we are now living here in Iron Mountain.
I graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2018 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. I have been practicing as a Registered Nurse for 3.5 years. I have always had a heart for community nursing and I enjoy providing nursing services outside of the clinical setting. My main experience has been in Home Health and Hospice, working with families and clinical teams to provide high quality care in the home setting.
I am excited to now be working with students and families in Iron Mountain, I hope to help educate and empower our young people and community. I believe knowledge is power and I hope to safely bridge the gap between school and home.
