With over a decade of experience, Kathryn consistently takes several students each term in her Boston midwifery practice and provides a very high standard of care. She has precepted for FNU for over five years, and students find her positive, caring and an excellent role model.  


Most recently she precepted FNU students Nicole Mapes and Cecile Sampson. In addition to her clinical practice, she is very active with ACNM leadership. She was recently inducted as a 2016 Fellow of ACNM and the Region One representative for ACNM.  


“Kathryn has become a pivotal influence on my road to becoming a successful CNM,” said Mapes. “She has shown me what a joy and opportunity precepting can truly be, which has made me excited to teach future midwives. I am eternally grateful to have the opportunity to learn and grow from such a thoughtful, bright and selfless person.”


Kathryn is also an accomplished linguist and is trained in French, Portuguese, Italian, Swahili and Mandarin Chinese.


Kathryn will receive a Starbucks gift card as a small token of our appreciation for her being a great preceptor. Thanks for your investment in our FNU students, Kathryn!
