I love listening to good personal stories. I love being helpful and holding hands. I feel that by working at InnovAge I am doing some of my life's best work.

For nearly 40 years, Kathleen has been caring for people all across the state of Colorado, including in Boulder, Lafayette, Grand Junction, and Denver. She also spent some time in India as a volunteer nurse relief worker in rural parts of the country, helping with primary and urgent care needs, and coordinating "cataract eye camps" with non-profit organizations.

Kathleen is a nationally certified family and geriatric nurse practitioner, with advanced certification in palliative and hospice care. 

Kathleen earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Nursing Loretto Heights College in Denver, Colorado. She then earned her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Northern Colorado. 

Kathleen enjoys spending time and having adventures with her daughters and 10 grandchildren.
