Kathie K. LCSW

Oncology Social Worker, Cancer Care Connection

Kathie is an Oncology Social Worker with Cancer Care Connection, an affiliate of JFS Delaware. She has over 10 years of clinical experience serving the community and supporting individuals and caregivers impacted by cancer and other life stressors. Kathie’s prior work experience includes supporting clients who are managing and coping with depression and anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, and adjustment to planned and unplanned life transitions. Kathie practices from a collaborative, strengths-based and person-centered perspective.

With a BS in Human Resource Management from Wilmington University, Kathie’s first career was in HR for a Federal agency. It was this experience and her exposure to social work and social justice which encouraged her leap of faith to return to school and begin a second career in social work. She completed her graduate degree at Bryn Mawr Graduate School of Social Work and Research in 2011 and, soon after, began her work with Cancer Care Connection. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Kathie also worked briefly with a Home Visit Program as part of an Integrated Health Care team, providing care to geriatric and homebound patients.

Kathie and her spouse recently moved to Sussex County, Delaware with their rescue dog, Tucker. Reading is a life-long joy for Kathie and, in other free time, she enjoys knitting and needlework, ocean walks and swimming, hiking nearby trails, and a bit of gardening. In the past, she enjoyed volunteering with Paws for People.
