Katie Baldwin

Katie is a Psychiatric – Mental Health Nurse working at Canada’s largest children’s Hospital. At 13 years old, Katie experienced a traumatic event, which in turn sparked her first glimpse into Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Over the last 13 years, she’s had ups and downs but attributes her success and happiness to finally letting her guard down, asking for help, but most importantly her loving and supportive parents and friends.
Asking for help not only allowed Katie to realize she was not alone, but it allowed her to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a Registered Nurse in mental health.
