Mary Catherine Oechslin, NPMary Catherine NP

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 our daughter, Bailey, and our Bernese Mountain dog, Stella.  I am a huge Alabama football fan and enjoy trying new restaurants around Louisville and live music!

As promised, we told you we would keep you updated. Here is what we are currently doing to protect our patients, parents, and community. This is ever changing so stay tuned!

We currently DO NOT have the capability to test for COVID-19 here at the office. If this changes in the future, we will be sure to let our community know but at this time, there is NO testing at private offices.

The doctors, management, and staff here at KBPG appreciate your patience during this time. It’s a learning curve for all of us but we will get through this together!
