Katie then continued her education through Oregon Health Science University to complete her Bachelor Degree in Nursing. She also decided during this time that she was going to be a Family Nurse Practitioner and joined the Medical/Surgical Float pool as a Registered Nurse at Providence Portland Medical Center. This allowed her to expand her patient population and gain experience in all areas of acute care. After completing her Bachelor program, she decided to go through University of South Alabama for her Master’s Degree in Nursing to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.
Katie is married to her wonderful husband. They don’t currently have kids, but plan to have many fur-babies. They were blessed with an opportunity to buy land in Sisters, OR a few years ago and have been enjoying Central Oregon in their spare time. They are very excited to be living in Central Oregon full time and enjoying all of the outdoor activities. They enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, and cooking together.
