Having had supportive parents, I love being able to spend time with families and see their versions of this type of loving support.
Dr. Kate Ryan joined our practice in 2002. She completed her undergraduate studies at Yale University before moving on to University of California, San Francisco for medical school. Dr. Ryan then moved to the Pacific Northwest and completed her residency at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Dr. Ryan’s experience in caring for people started early. She was trained as an EMT and joined the local rescue squad at age 15. During medical school, Dr. Ryan volunteered to care for the children on the specialty services. It came as no surprise to her friends that she decided to go into pediatrics, given her love of children and extensive knowledge of camp songs and children’s books.
Dr. Ryan lives in Sammamish with her husband, twin daughters, a Goldendoodle, a cat, and four chickens. When she isn’t shuttling her children to their activities, she loves being outside, is an avid hiker, dog walker, and Pine Lake Park swimming area fan. Dr. Ryan also enjoys knitting, quilting, playing with Photoshop, and reading or listening to audiobooks. She and her husband are looking forward to getting back to long distance bike riding, when they can convince their girls to join them.
