Previously involved in public policy and capital markets regulation, Kathleen's career took a sudden and unexpected turn following the six-month hospitalization of her elderly mother. It was an experience that made Kathleen determined to play a role in changing a system that is too often lacking in transparency and accountability and leaves too many patients and families injured and devastated by the emotional harm of medical errors. Today she is recognized as a leading voice for patients and families in the campaign to reduce medical errors, and for the significant benefits and cost savings that safer care and reduced incidents of emotional harm can produce.
Kathleen is founder of the Zero Now Campaign to fight sexual misconduct in the workplace and restore career opportunities to its survivors. She is a frequent commentator in the media. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
