Suiki Schaffer Boardman



I'm the nurse at Lovett.  The kids all call me Nurse Suiki.  I look forward to having to opportunity to meet you, so please feel free to stop by the clinic at any time to discuss your child, or to just say hello.

I have been a nurse for over  40 years.  I  retired from the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Texas Children's Hospital, after 36 years. Retirement didn't last, and now I am in my second career at Lovett, and I am very much looking forward to caring for the students - and staff, here.

I graduated with a B.S. degree from Texas Woman's University and have a Master's Degree in Nursing, specializing in Pediatrics from TWU as well.  I have lived in the Lovett area (Bellaire) for over thirty years, and I am married to a pediatrician.  We have two children; a daughter, who is a 2nd grade teacher, here at Lovett, and a son, who is a former pitcher in the Detroit Tigers organization.

My goal is to use my professional expertise as a nurse to support the students in maintaining optimal mental and physical wellness.  My practice is to provide compassionate, colaborative, culturally sensitive, and evidence-base care to all, thereby enabling students to be healthy, safe, and successful learners.
