Katy graduated from Salford College of Nursing and Midwifery, England, in 1982. After working in acute care hospitals in the UK, she relocated to Florida and began her career in long term care. She has worked as a staff nurse, supervisor, staff educator, risk manager, and director of nursing. Katy loves being a nurse and her positive attitude toward her profession has inspired her daughter to enter nursing, too. She has lived in Boca Raton since 1992 and now considers herself a native Floridian! In her spare time, she loves to travel and spend time with her family.
