• Hello ! Welcome to Hellgate Health Office. 

    Hellgate Elementary Health Information.   

    I’m Danielle Herbst the school nurse at Hellgate Elementary.  I was born and raised in Missoula and after attending the MSU School of Nursing in Bozeman (Go Bobcats!), I returned home to work at Community Medical Center. While my previous nursing experience is primarily in Adult Oncology, I have been around school nursing my whole life, even occasionally filling in here at Hellgate Elementary. The Herbst name might sound familiar because my mom, Renee, was the school nurse here at Hellgate for 19 years! I am very excited to follow in her footsteps and get to know you and your children over the course of the year.

    I share my home with my two ridiculous and hilarious golden retrievers.  Together we can be found hiking, fishing, and hanging out with friends and family. In my free time I also enjoy sewing, crafting, baking, and reading. I love to travel and always have the perfect excuse to do so with family and friends scatter across the country.

    Please contact me with any concerns you may have regarding your child’s health.  Communication is key to keeping your child safe and healthy while at school.

    Cheers to a happy and healthy school year!

    Danielle Herbst BSN, RN
