Kathy Gale-Health Occupations Instructor

I am a Registered Nurse with a Masters in Health Administration/Education. I worked for many years in the healthcare field. On the clinical side I specialized in Mental Health care and then I also spent several years in Administration. I managed units, developed programs, educated and supervised clinical staff. I have worked in Coeur d Alene, Spokane, and spent the last 15 years of my nursing career in the Phoenix VA Healthcare system. I retired from nursing and then went to work for KTEC as a Health Occupations instructor--teaching the Juniors.
I very much enjoy teaching the juniors about the healthcare field and exposing them to the numerous opportunities available to them. They are curious, smart, polite, and a total joy to work with. It is fascinating watching them grow! It feels great to be giving back to my Profession of Nursing!.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, water sports, and most of all spending time with my 2 children and my grandchild. I spend as much time as I can in Phoenix AZ as I do miss the Arizona Sunshine.
