KATHERINE (KATIE) JOHNSON, RN
I have been interested in birth and babies since I was little. I graduated from nursing school in 2007, pregnant with our first daughter, so I decided to start my career after she was born as a childbirth educator and later became a Doula in 2012. I had the opportunity to visit a free-standing birth center in Denver while I was in nursing school, and I knew immediately that I wanted to be part of a birth center in Colorado Springs.
I worked as a childbirth educator, Doula, and birth assistant for a home-birth midwife until 2016. In 2016, I began working as a Mother-Baby nurse at Memorial Hospital North. I joined the Springs Midwifery and Women’s Care team late in 2017 as a birth assistant nurse. My passion is supporting, educating, and caring for women and their families through their lives and especially during their childbearing experiences. My husband, Tim, and I have two daughters, Laura and Charlotte.
