Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Katie Duke left in her mid 20’s to pursue a feeling inside her that there was “something greater out there,” and that feeling led her to New York City. New York proved to be the right move for Duke. It was the energy of the city that inspired her to find her purpose, leave a very abusive relationship, complete her education, and provided opportunities that opened up new chapters in her life.

Ms. Duke has 15 years experience in Nursing, with the last 4 years spent working as a Board Certified Acute Care Nurse Practitioner specializing in Inpatient Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery in New York City at one of the Nation’s top hospitals, Mount Sinai Hospital. In addition to her full time career as an NP, she also serves as a clinical preceptor to NYU ACNP graduate students, editorial contributor, motivational speaker, mentor, agency represented social media influencer, hosts the “Bad Decisions Podcast,” and is the founder of the “Duke It Up Event” which is an empowerment and mentoring workshop.

While continuing her inpatient NP career, Katie Duke’s 2 year goals include authoring a book about embracing your bad decisions and mistakes as a stepping stone to success, expanding her motivational event series, growing her Collection with Cherokee Uniforms, and branching into lifestyle products to help the everyday professional woman find work + life balance.

Join us Tuesday, April 20th 3:15 – 4:45pm for Katie’s Keynote Presentation.
