Born and raised in Bend, Oregon, Kathy has been a Coos County resident since 1996. She received her Master's in Public Health at the University of Alabama, went on to become a registered nurse, and subsequently obtained a Graduate Certificate in Infant and Toddler Mental Health. Kathy has worked with Coos Health and Wellness since 2000. A wife and mother of two, she continues to have a passion for working with children and their families at the individual and systems levels. She currently serves as the Home Visiting Manager.


I graduated with my Nursing degree in 2012. I then took a position on the pediatric unit at Bay Area Hospital. While working there I cared for a range of patients with chronic and acute illness. It was time to expand my nursing career and develop new skills and have landed here with Coos Health and Wellness. I am very excited to be here and look forward to meeting everyone.
My husband and I have three precious daughters, ages 5, 8 and 11. They keep us very busy and laughing every day! I feel very blessed with my career and wonderful family.
