About This ProviderPrint
"I have always had a love for pediatrics. I worked as a NICU nurse prior to becoming a Pediatric Nurse
Practitioner and knew that I wanted to continue to work with this population. Children are some of the toughest human beings I have ever seen. If I can impact any aspect of their life to help them become successful adults, I feel I have done my job in pediatric medicine."
Kate enjoys caring for children of all ages, and welcomes new patients from birth to
adolescents. She is interested in allergy and asthma, is passionate about taking time to explain medical diagnoses and treatment plans and working with families to ensure they can accomplish goals and meet expectations in their child's development.
Medicine is a field in which Kate enjoys learning new things daily. Ultimately, she tries to
find evidence-based ways to practice medicine while ensuring her patients receive the best treatment possible.
Kate grew up in the Madison area and in fact, received her own pediatric care at Meriter Clinics. She and her husband have recently returned to the area with their three children, and she is pleased to be able to practice medicine with UnityPoint Health - Meriter. Kate loves to travel and has lived many places, including Germany, throughout her husband's military career.
