Katie graduated with a Master’s in Nursing from the Western University of Health
Sciences in 2009 and her post Master’s Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Certificate from the
University of Texas in 2017. She is a board certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and has
worked in primary care since becoming a nurse practitioner.
Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, Katie has 10 years of experience as a bedside
nurse working at two world-renowned pediatric intensive care units, UCLA and Texas
Children’s in Houston, as well as a pediatric transplant coordinator for children who
needed new livers and kidneys.
She relocated with her family to her husband’s hometown of Austin in 2015 to be closer
to family. While originally from Wisconsin, she would rather sweat out the hot summers
in Texas than freeze in the cold winters of the Midwest. She enjoys spending time with
her husband and four daughters exploring all that Austin has to offer. You can find them
hiking at local parks, riding their bikes around the neighborhood or playing with their 2
dogs and 2 cats at home.
