Katie is a seasoned endo warrior who has been in recovery from endometriosis and adenomyosis since 2016. After years of pain and infertility, Katie was finally diagnosed with Stage IV endometriosis in March of 2012. After two unsuccessful ablation surgeries, she found an excision endometriosis specialist who could better treat her illness and also diagnosed her with adenomyosis. She had two successful excision surgeries with the specialist, the last of which included a hysterectomy to treat her aggressive and painful adenomyosis. Since that last surgery in October of 2014, Katie has been mostly symptom-free and has worked hard to reclaim her health and to guide others in their journey with endometriosis to find proper treatment and support.
The Minnesota Endo Warriors are very thankful to Katie for her contributions as both a past Treasurer and Vice President in the organization.
