Staff Member: Kristen Lucas
Mrs. Kristen Lucas has been a nurse for over 20 years. Her first job as a nurse was working with children with special needs which is where she developed a passion for pediatric nursing.

Prior to obtaining her nursing degree, Mrs. Lucas worked for 10 years as a veterinary technician at the Veterinary Emergency clinic. She has been married to her high school sweetheart for 34 years and together they have three beautiful sons. Her oldest son is 26 and moved to California after graduating from UCF. Her 22 year old twin sons recently graduated from UCF with degrees in Mechanical Engineering. Mrs. Lucas loves spending time with her family, running, soccer, and the Boston Nation. She loves MSC because "you can sense the love and compassion the staff have for every student. I believe that together we can be the voice of change for children with special needs."
