Kathy has provided Neurotherapy (Neurofeedback) at Cherokee Creek Boys School since January of 2015. She was inspired to become a Neurotherapist in 2005 after witnessing the benefits her son received from having neurotherapy. With 13 years in the field, and having had a private practice in Oconee County, Kathy now works exclusively at Cherokee Creek as an independent contractor.

Kathy has been a Registered Nurse for 40 years. She went to nursing school on the GI Bill after serving in the USAF. She has decades of experience in pediatric nursing, home health and hospice. Kathy says, “CCBS is the happiest place I’ve ever worked! Getting out of the car in the morning and hearing healthy, happy boys, laughing, playing and seeing their rosy cheeks… it’s just the best!”

Let me share a middle school story…

“I spent 8 years in a small, parochial school. Afraid of the teachers, I aimed to please with perfectionism in penmanship and keeping the rules. I was shy and lacked confidence socially and academically. I painfully had a new best friend every school year. I nervously bit my nails and persistently suffered from headaches and stomachaches. At home I cried a lot and also endured terrible nightmares. Upon entering the 8th grade in Sept. 1963, I was afraid of growing up and what the future would hold for me.”

“All that changed in the fall of 1963 when President Kennedy was assassinated. I began watching the evening news. I learned more about the world, politics, Civil Rights and The Beatles. As I discovered my own passions, I felt more confident and excited about life and my future. Awake or asleep, I began dreaming big dreams. By the end of 9th grade I had developed many friendships with girls and boys from my school, other schools, and also through pen pals from around the world. We were united through Beatlemania! I began to define myself, individuate, and really grow socially, academically and emotionally.”
