Katie believes that cannabis truly is a medicine and has seen it increase quality of life for many people who were not getting adequate symptom relief through traditional treatments. She is a proud advocate that cannabis should be a first-line alternative, not a last resort - especially when many commonly prescribed drugs have potentially dangerous or deadly side effects. To date, she has worked with over 1100 medical cannabis patients and their families, assisting them to utilize this treatment safely and successfully.
Katie is a committed patient advocate and an active member of the American Cannabis Nurses Association, the Society of Cannabis Clinicians, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, the International Association of Psychedelic Nurses, Chicago NORML, and the Illinois Cannabis Equity Coalition. She is honored to serve as an appointed member of the Illinois Medical Cannabis Advisory Board and a member of the Clinical Education Council for the Illinois Psychedelic Society.
