Welcome to the LRTA Health Suite!


Mrs. Boone, BSN, RN



Welcome, I am Mrs. Boone and I am the proud school nurse at Loch Raven Technical Academy.  In addition to being a school nurse, I am a pediatric ER nurse at Johns Hopkins Hospital.  Prior to becoming a nurse, I was a fourth grade teacher.  My education and work experience have allowed me to find the perfect job as the school nurse at LRTA!
