Kathleen has been working in the mental health field for most of her professional career. She began her career working for Johnson and Johnson educating primary care physicians and psychiatrists on many mental health pharmaceuticals for ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and other behavioral health disorders. Kathleen gained a strong background in understanding how medication can play a role in the treatment of mental health disorders. After more than 12 years working for Johnson and Johnson, Kathleen transitioned to Aspen Education Group where she was employed as a Clinical Outreach Coordinator for adolescent wilderness and residential treatment centers. The experience at Aspen allowed her to understand how treatment plays a critical role in the diagnosis, healing and power to thrive after challenging life events. Most recently, Kathleen was a Treatment Placement Specialist with Acadia Healthcare in the Adult Recovery Division. This position expanded her knowledge of how mental health, family dynamics and emotional trauma play a role in addiction.
Kathleen is a graduate of West Chester University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Marketing and Business Administration.
In addition, Kathleen is a wife and a mother to her husband Justin and their two sons, Brett and Landen. She feels her most important job is to be a present parent and partner. Kathleen spends many hours at the baseball field, hockey rink, volunteering for marching band and incorporating outdoor activities as much as possible.
