Kathleen Leach MN, ARNP, FNP-BC
The first 15 years of my career were dedicated to being a primary care provider at a variety of family practices in Snohomish County while I raised my children. Then in 2001, I returned to my alma mater to take a faculty position in the Family Nurse Practitioner program. I have been teaching in the FNP track as well as maintaining a clinical practice since that time helping train our future health care providers in the classroom as well as the clinical arena.

What do you love about the UW School of Nursing?
I was drawn back to the University of Washington later in my career and found that the academic environment was stimulating and helped to keep me engaged in my career in health care. The school of nursing is committed to training excellent scholars as well as clinicians in health care and I am proud to be part of the team that trains our future health care providers.
