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!
