ABOUT Katy:

Katy's career in maternal-child health has always been guided by a passion for health and reproductive justice.  Katy is excited to partner with Preconceive as they provide much needed services often missing in standard doctors visits and reduce the struggles in early motherhood.  Inspired by midwives she worked with as a Labor Delivery nurse in upstate New York, Katy moved to Brooklyn in 2013 to pursue her degree, and recently completed her Masters of Science in Nurse-Midwifery at the State University of New York- Downstate.  Since 2014, she has worked as a staff nurse in the Neonatal ICU at SUNY Downstate Medical Center- University Hospital.  To better serve her midwifery clients and NICU mamas, Katy is constantly pursuing additional educational opportunities, and holds certifications as a  Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator and an Advanced Nurse Lactation Consultant.
