My name is Masumi (ma-sue-me) Rinaldi. I am a registered nurse working at Northshore School District (NSD) since 2007. As of October of 2020, I have been working as a school nurse at Inglemoor High School. I work along with nurse Carol in the health room to support our IHS students and community. My prior assignment was as a one to one nurse supporting an NSD student from preschool through high school. I loved working closely with the classroom teacher and the students, many of whom I’ve gotten to know very well.
My first Registered Nursing license I earned was in Japan. I have been working in the US as an RN since 1993. I have worked in adult medical-surgical and transitional care units, hospice care in Japan and the USA prior to NSD.
I am a member of National Associate of School Nurse and trained as a school nurse including, school emergency, mental health first aid and suicide prevention.
I believe in providing a safe environment to students. This includes not just their physical safety, but also their mental and emotional well-being. I believe, this is an essential component for the students to achieve their highest possible performance at school.
I am a wife and a mother of two sons, who went through NSD schools K-12. In fact, one of my sons graduated from Inglemoor HS!
In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities gardening, hiking, and traveling. I enjoy sports too. I am 5’3” who played high school basketball in Japan as a center!
