Meet your Syre Nurse 

   Shirley Van Beek RN, BSN, MN   

Welcome to the Syre Health RoomThis will be my 20th year as a School Nurse - and my 15th year at Syre!

Prior to coming to Syre, I was a School Nurse for 5 years in the Everett School District.

I come from a Military Family as my father was in the Air Force and Navy for a total of 30 years. Therefore, I grew up all over the United States-having lived in 40 of the states. I followed in my father's footsteps for a short time by serving in the Air Force for 6 years and served during the Persian Gulf War.

I have been married to my husband, Dennis, for 24 years and have a daughter, Nicole who turned 20 on January 4th, and a son, Daniel who is 21. I also have two very spoiled animal children, Sadie-a 12 month old Chocolate Lab puppy and Midnight-an 8 year old Maine Coon cat. Both Sadie and Midnight were rescue animals from NOAH in Stanwood.

I  graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing and from the University of Washington with my Master's Degree in Nursing.
