The most difficult times for many of us are the ones we give ourselves.
Katie is a recently retired pediatrician who earned a bachelor of arts degree at New York University and a medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. Before retirement, she served as faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine as a hospital-based pediatrician often caring for children facing the uncertainty of serious illness. It was through caring for this vulnerable population that she became interested in Mindfulness as a means of both providing improved communication and care, but also in hopes of alleviating suffering for families, patients and fellow care providers. While at Wash U, it was her privilege to learn, practice, and teach Mindfulness principles and meditation to patients and their families, as well as to fellow providers and medical trainees. She attended training to learn how to integrate Mindfulness into the clinical setting and studied the science behind its benefits such as stress reduction, resiliency, and improved communication in healthcare. Katie practices Mindfulness regularly and remains an avid student of all aspects of Mindfulness – from the neurologic basis of its benefits to the spiritual teachings that inform its secular practice.
