Kat is originally from Lamar, Mo and went to the University of Kansas. She graduated with a B.A. in psychology and a Master's in Music Therapy and then completed an internship with Lawrence Public Schools. She has since worked with children with a variety of intellectual and developmental disabilities as well adults with multiple forms of dementia for over a decade. Kat’s favorite part about being a music therapist is the high she gets from a good session, when a breakthrough is made, or a special moment is shared.
