MItchell Elementary School Clinic
Cockerill, Faythe RN, BSN
Hello! My name is Faythe Cockerill and I'm so excited to be here at Mitchell! I graduated from Tarleton State University in 2015 with my BSN. I then continued my nursing journey to Labor and Delivery where I spent the next five years. My husband and I are originally from central Texas and we have been back in the area for the past three years. We have a black lab named Nyx and we recently added a new member to our family, our daughter Maisie, who was born last year. I'm so thankful for this opportunity to get to know and care for your kids!
