Nurse's Office


Meredith Lippe, R.N.

My name is Meredith Lippe and I am the full time nurse at Walnut Grove Elementary. I have been a nurse for 15 years, however this will be my first year at WGES. I am so excited to be serving the community in this new role! My husband Ben and I have two dragons that attend Walnut Grove,  Palmer and Emma. Palmer is entering 2nd grade and Emma will be starting Kindergarten.

I grew up in Charleston, South Carolina and I love anything to do with the beach, boating, and fried green tomatoes. I also enjoy playing tennis and watching my daughters in ballet.
