She joined the Geriatric Psychiatry Research Program as a Clinical Research Assistant in June 2021 where she currently works on our longitudinal mood disorder study working with older adults that have bipolar or major depressive disorder. Additionally, she works on two of our bioenergetic studies, one that looks at a vitamin supplement as a treatment for mild Alzheimer’s Disease and the other that looks at bioenergetic metabolism in older adults with Alzheimer’s Disease. Finally, she works on an industry sponsored clinical trials assessing the safety and efficacy of disease modifying monoclonal antibodies for Alzheimer's Disease. In her free time, Kathryn enjoys uphill skiing and teaching children how to swim. In the future, she plans to pursue a career in medicine.
