Undergraduate: Washington University
Medical School: Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University (AOA)
Katie grew up in Crystal Lake, Illinois, and graduated cum laude from Washington University in St. Louis with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology and minors in Global Health and the Environment and Music. After college she spent 2 years working at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in women’s mental health research before starting medical school at Brown University in the combined M.D.-Master of Science in Primary Care and Population Medicine program. Throughout medical school, Katie’s scholarly work focused on leveraging the pediatric primary care setting to improve access to mental health care for children and their moms, as well as community-based work focused on improving health care for women with substance use disorders in early recovery. She was also involved in many teaching and mentorship activities throughout her time at Brown, and hopes to continue to grow as a medical educator throughout residency. Katie was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society, and was awarded the Christopher Benedick, MD, Child Psychiatry Award upon graduation. Katie is passionate about improving access to mental health care for children and their families, and hopes to work in integrated behavioral health in the primary care setting for children and adolescents, and to be involved in policy and advocacy efforts around improving mental health care for kids on a systems level. Outside of medicine, Katie loves spending time with her friends and family, exploring the Providence restaurant scene with her husband Danny, making homemade pasta, playing board games, singing, cuddling with her cat Daisy, and knitting. During her four years of medical school, Katie has fallen in love with Providence and Rhode Island thanks to the vibrant community, fabulous beaches, and unparalleled mentorship at Brown, and she could not be more excited to officially join the Brown Triple Board and Pediatrics families.
