“I’m Katie, and I have been a nurse practitioner with Southern Cancer Center since 2020. I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Nursing in 2015 from Tennessee Technological University and my Masters of Science in Nursing in 2019 from University of Alabama in Huntsville.
I married my best friend in 2018, and we have one daughter, Nora, who was just born in late 2021. We have two dogs who think they’re also our children and love to curl up in our laps even though they’re 75 and 90 pounds. In my spare time, I love to bake and garden, and we usually have some new baking experiments in the house.
I fell in love with oncology when I was working at Vanderbilt. I wasn’t working in oncology specifically at the time, but I got the opportunity to work closely with a lot of oncology patients in my role there. I have always been so impressed by the strength and courage of my oncology patients, and I knew then that I wanted to be able to be a bigger support in their journey. When I moved to Alabama, I got the opportunity to work on a hematology/oncology unit, and I knew I’d found my home. Working at Southern Cancer Center has given me the opportunity to work with and for some pretty incredible people, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
