Kate grew up in Tenants Harbor, Maine. She studied biology and the history of philosophy of science at Wesleyan University in Connecticut. Before returning to nursing school, she worked as a science teacher and in health research. During her program, she also studied Mind-Body Health & Healing through the Benson-Henry Institute at MGH. This left her with a passion for encouraging health through stress reduction and mindfulness. Kate is very happy to be home in Maine and working with patients to support their well-being.
