• Hello ! Welcome to Hellgate Health Office. 

    Hellgate Elementary Health Information.   

    Hello!  My name is Brayden Byrne and I serve as the school nurse for Hellgate Elementary and Middle School. I was born and raised in Missoula and received my degree in nursing at the University of Portland. After working in Portland as a float pool nurse and getting experience on most adult inpatient units throughout the hospital I decided to return home. My love of nursing and health care first began through volunteering at at a Camp for children with cancer. I just finished my 9th year of volunteering with this organization.  This experience has helped me to discern nursing as a career but has also helped me identify pediatrics as the patient population I want to serve. I am excited to serve in this new role as a school nurse and look forward to getting to know you and your children.

    When I am not at school, I am an avid fly fisherman, rock climber, and outdoorsman. I will almost always have my black lab Caddis by my side who also likes to go on adventures. This upcoming ski season I will be on the volunteer ski patrol at Snowbowl so don’t be afraid to ask where the best powder is.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns you may have regarding your child’s health. My goal is to help your children feel safe and stay healthy while they are at school.

    Let’s have a fun, safe, and healthy school year!
