Psychiatric Registered Nurse
Katie has a unique mix of inpatient and outpatient psychiatric experience. Upon graduating from the Conemaugh School of Nursing, she worked as a floor nurse for an Inpatient Adult Psychiatric Unit for five years. She then transitioned into Conemaugh’s outpatient psychiatric clinic where she spent two years as the clinic RN helping to care for adult, child/adolescent and geriatric patients. Upon completing her BSN degree at Mount Aloysius College, she began her studies at Walden University to become a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner. Her passion for mental health stems largely from her mission work overseas while studying at Penn State University. Katie's extensive background, in school and in the field, have given The Nexus Group office a tremendous amount of support and care. Her kindness and gentle manner of speaking have allowed our patients to feel comfortable communicating to her, and we are so thankful to have her as part of our staff. When Katie is not working or studying, she is most likely spending time with her husband, two young children and golden retriever.
