About Catherine

Catherine is excited to join the Village Health Partners team as a certified Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP-C). She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and her Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Memphis.

Catherine is most passionate about preventive health. She advocates for healthy lifestyles including regular screenings, exercise, and routinely seeing your primary care provider. She encourages patients to be aware of the negative effects stress has on one’s health. Catherine recommends taking part in relaxing activities like yoga, a hobby, or spending uninterrupted time with family and friends to help reduce stress levels.

Catherine and her husband Roger live in Plano, Texas. They met while attending the University of Tennessee and have been married for 7 years. They enjoy attending UT volunteer football and basketball games, concerts, trying new local restaurants, and visiting their family in Tennessee. As a family, they strive to exercise regularly, avoid excessive sugar and processed foods, and drink ample water daily.
