Kate is no stranger to the horrors of endometriosis. In her journey, she has encountered countless doctors, a failed surgery, and over 8 years of pain in trying to find answers. In November 2015 Kate finally found Dr. Eric Heegaard with ObGyn West and after her first laparoscopic excision surgery was formally diagnosed. In January 2018 she traveled for further assistance to the CEC (Center for Endometriosis Care) in Atlanta, GA. After battling her own struggle to find compassionate and adequate care she knew she wanted to help make a difference. She is so excited to be part of the endometriosis community in Minnesota and can't wait to bring more awareness to more people. She wants to help all endo warriors feel connected and part of this community.
