Kathleen began her journey in healthcare in 2000 as a registered nurse in labor and delivery. While she loved working with women and families during such an intense and intimate time, she realized she craved a deeper and more long-term connection with patients. Thus, she returned to school and earned her doctorate degree in nursing practice from the University of Washington. Kathleen has been practicing as a Certified Nurse Midwife since 2017, and is excited to join the team at Advanced Women's Health to continue to serve women in healthcare.
Practicing compassionate, holistic care that welcomes open-ended discussions, Kathleen partners with women throughout the life span from adolescence through menopause. Kathleen's mission is to educate and empower women to be active participants in their own healthcare. She is passionate about all aspects of women's health, from preventative care to infertility. Kathleen is committed to creating a safe space in healthcare for ALL women including BIPOC and members of the LGBTQ community.
Kathleen lives with her husband and two children. She loves to go on outdoor adventures with her family and dogs. She also enjoys traveling, gardening, cooking, and photography.
