Katrina Im, RN, received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Boston College. Upon graduation, she was selected to join the Teach for America corps where she dedicated two years teaching high school students in an under-resourced school. Working in an urban school district has only solidified her passion for returning to an underserved community in order to increase mental health access and promote awareness.
Last year, Ms. Im also had the opportunity to work with high-risk children and adolescents through intensive child, parent and family in-home therapy (IICAPS). Through this experience she was able to work closely with individuals to prevent psychiatric hospitalization and maintain stability within the community
She is currently in her final year at Yale University School of Nursing studying to be a psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner.
She is a member of the Delta Mu chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International.
