Hi there, I’m Kate.
I live in Nashville, Tennessee where I love to read, write and learn with my family.
I’ve practiced medicine as an obstetrician-gynecologist, and I loved delivering babies and walking alongside women as an advocate of maternal health.
I’m also a writer, and after my father died in 2012, I was going through old family pictures, and I decided to tell a story inspired by my Sicilian family, so I wrote a book for middle grade readers called Snow in Sicily.
My husband and I have four amazing kids, so lately I’ve been working on children’s picture books. My first one is called Bartleby. Any proceeds from my creative projects go to a non-profit that my husband and I founded in 2011 called Remember Me Mission.
I have also worked in the technology sector, building an app called Backpack Health that allows people all over the world to have ownership and agency over their health care information. I loved that experience and I learned so much from an amazing team of people. I continue my work in the health technology field, and there’s never a boring day!
I’ve also been a homeschool mom, which was a pretty awesome job, and I love sharing the books our family reads and all the things we’re learning and discovering along the way.
Thanks for stopping by!
