Kate Kennedy, ARNP-BC

Kate has worked in the neuroscience field for all of her career and directly or indirectly with headache medicine for most of it. She graduated from the UW acute care track in 2000 with plans to work in neurosurgery but started her NP career in a headache and MS clinic before moving to neurosurgery. Headache medicine kept drawing her back and became a passion which she embraced several years ago. She got her Certificate for Added Qualification in Headache Medicine in 2018 and moved to Overlake to help start a headache clinic in 2019.
