Prior to moving to the Seattle area, Katherine worked as a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) at Hartford Hospital and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center where she administered anesthetics to open heart, organ transplant, neurosurgery, obstetrics, and level I trauma patients, as well as to critically ill children and neonates.
