Katie received her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Tennessee Tech University in 2011. Her first nursing position was overseas in Uganda where she spent 2.5 years working with vulnerable populations of mostly women and children. Katie moved back to the States and began working in a Burn ICU where she worked for 6 years further developing her nursing skills and her love for nursing. While Katie enjoyed working in the hospital she began to see many gaps in patient care and a re-occurring thought she had was “What could we have done differently to prevent this illness?” Katie believes that every patient story is different and the plan of care should be as unique as the patient. Katie believes that the goal of health is not just the absence of disease, but the capability and energy to live life to it’s fullest. The more she learns about the functional medicine approach to health and wellness the more she sees this as the new gold standard for healthcare!
Katie loves to hike and camp with her husband Kyle and their pup Lucy. If it’s a nice, sunny day outside and Katie isn’t at work you can probably find her on a trail somewhere!
