Katie A. FossenM.D. F.A.C.O.G.
Practicing since 2011
Areas of Specialization
All areas of obstetrics, adolescent and general gynecology.
How do you like to spend your free time?
I really love playing videogames with my son, singing along to car songs with my daughter, and enjoying morning coffee with my husband. We also like to go camping with our golden retriever, Ralphie, when we can.
What is your favorite type of music?
I like a lot of different kinds of music, hard to narrow it down. I suppose modern folk and rock would be my favorites.
What inspired you to become a doctor?
I really just never thought of much else once I got serious about a career path. Dr. Cada has always been a close family friend and mentor of mine, and it was once I started spending some shadowing time with her in college that I pointed myself toward obstetrics and gynecology.
Who do you most admire and why?
I most admire my parents. Through hard work and commitment they have built a great life for themselves, and everyone around them. Their generosity towards others is inspiring, and my family and I are so lucky to have them in our lives.
What is your favorite quote or saying?
Love much, laugh often.
Where is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
What is your most vivid childhood memory?
Almost running over my grandfather’s corn with his riding mower when I was five. I couldn’t figure out how to stop, or turn, so I just bailed off. Luckily he caught it just in time.
Where were you born and raised?
Lincoln and a small town called Palmyra, Nebraska.
Why did you join the Gynecology & Fertility, P.C. team?
I think our approach in this office is a good one in that we try to take extra time to get to know our patients and make them feel comfortable, which is so important with the personal issues that come up in our field. We also have a great support staff, and everyone is very dedicated to the care of our patients.
