My name is Catie Ensz.  I have been the school nurse at Unity Braxton Middle since the 2016-2017 school year.  Prior to working at Unity Braxton I have practiced in the settings of in-patient pediatric nursing, in-home pediatric nursing (medically fragile), and school nursing in and outside of PWCS.  I received my BSN in 2007 and my certification in pediatrics in 2008.  I also have a BA in Spanish.  I decided at age 14 that I wanted to be a nurse and never looked back!  Areas of special interest include pulmonary care and diabetes education.  I am a member of the insulin/glucagon teaching team for PWCS.  I love teaching students and their families how to better optimize students' health and well-being in the school setting and beyond.  I tell our students that I promise to provide for them the same level of care that I would hope to for my own family members.  Please reach out to me (e-mail is the most efficient) with thoughts, questions, or concerns.  My e-mail is  If you need to reach me during school hours, please call 703-361-3185.  Our fax number (for medical forms, health treatment plans, etc.) is 703-335-6035.

I will be available during regular school hours to respond to e-mails during this time.  School health services will be updating our staff and families regarding end-of-year medication pick-up and other clinical concerns as possible.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.  

Happy hand-washing, 
Nurse Catie
