Prior to joining Nobles in 2010, O’Connor worked at Mass General Hospital for more than 15 years in many different capacities, most recently as a nurse practitioner. Much of her time there was spent in oncology and surgery. O’Connor left MGH with plans to stay home for a few years with her children, but soon realized that she really missed her work as a nurse. She returned to work part time in the local school system, and quickly learned that school nursing is the perfect combination of healthcare, counseling and education. O’Connor feels lucky to work at Nobles, where she feels “surrounded by wonderful students and faculty,” and looks forward to coming every day.
