Kathy’s 'signature story' is her transformation as an ER/trauma nurse who became the first health care worker in America to be diagnosed HIV positive as a result of workplace exposure, which made her a ‘poster child’ for the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Months later, all tests returned negative. Kathy has inspired thousands to SHED around the world, including Europe, Canada, Africa, and Mexico.
