Mary Catherine Oechslin, APNP
I was born and raised in Louisville and am a Sacred Heart Academy graduate. I attended the University of Alabama where I received my Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies. I then worked at hospitals in Texas and Kentucky as a Child Life Specialist for 5 years before returning to school to become a nurse. I graduated from Spalding University in 2016 with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and then worked in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Norton Children’s Hospital for 2 years. I earned my Master of Science in Nursing specializing in pediatric primary care, from Vanderbilt University in 2018. I then worked at a pediatrician’s office in Southern Indiana before joining the Kaplan Barron Team.
I am a certified lactation counselor and can work with moms who are planning to breastfeed, or who may need extra support at any point in their breastfeeding journey. As a breastfeeding mother myself, I have become very passionate about encouraging those who want to be successful at breastfeeding meet their goals!
I live with my husband (who was a Kaplan Barron kid growing up) in Oldham County with 0ur daughter, Bailey, and our son, Tripp. I am a huge Alabama football fan and enjoy trying new restaurants around Louisville and live music!
