"I tell my patients that developing positive health habits we can practice on a daily basis, whether it’s making better meal choices or walking a few more steps or finding ways to manage stress, is an investment in our future quality of life. And it’s never too late to start!"

Medical Interests

Kathleen has a special interest in the prevention and treatment of acute coronary disease as well as the management of heart failure.

Medical Philosophy

Kathleen often works with patients who are newly diagnosed with coronary disease. She looks upon this as an opportunity for them to take advantage of the many resources the Meriter Heart and Vascular Hospital has to offer. “I feel so fortunate to be part of a team of nursing, cardiac rehab, clinical dieticians, pharmacists and discharge planners whose sole focus is to support patients in their journey towards better health,” Kathleen explains. Most importantly, Kathleen treats every patient as she would expect her own family to be treated.

Personal Interests

In her free time, Kathleen enjoys reading, travel and cheering for the Packers.

About Nurse Practitioners (NPs)

Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced training at the graduate and post graduate level, national certification and state licensure as independent health care providers. Nurse practitioners work in collaboration with physicians and other members of the health care team. They diagnose and treat patients with an emphasis on prevention, wellness and patient education. NPs have an important role to play within the health care system – the core philosophy of the field is individualized care.
