MEET THE TEAM

aka: The Dream Team! ✨

We're the most committed team there is, but there's no shortage of fun when we're working! 

FOUNDER + CEO

Cat Golden, BSN, RN

Cat is the dreamer + creator of this whole shebang! Cat is constantly coming up with ways to give back to the nursing community and is basically like Oprah. Her wild ideas make this an adventure for us all! 

DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMS

Lauren Wertz, LSW

We joke that Lauren is the real boss because she keeps Cat in line (someone has to!). She has a huge heart for this community and is here to remind you that you need to be taking care of yourself, and she reminds us too!

BUSINESS OPERATIONS MANAGER

Emily McKenzie, BSN, RN

Emily used to work with Cat at Children's Hospital of Michigan so we've come full circle having her as part of the Nurses Inspire Nurses team. Emily couldn't be more detailed oriented and is helping us stay in tip top touch shape, as well as, adding an extra ounce of love and care to our shop! 

COMMUNITY COORDINATOR

Maddie first learned about Nurses Inspire Nurses when she randomnly met Cat at a coffee shop. Ever since that first meeting she has stay connected to our Community. We are so excited to utilize her psych nursing background and business degree to better support this community!

SHOP ASSISTANT

MacKenzie Lago, BSN, RN

MacKenzie was our first "real" employee! We love how candid she is and have deemed her "Ms. Sassy Pants". She's here for all the orders and the job security!

SHOP ASSISTANT

Meghan English, BSN, RN

Meghan is our resident fashionista! She took a huge LEAP after hearing Cat speak and reached out asking for a job, we were hiring, and it was all meant to be. Meghan always keeps us smiling and is the cleaning queen!

SHOP ASSISTANT

Katie Strong, BSN, RN

Katie is a labor and delivery nurse and a California transplant. 

She first learned about Nurses Inspire Nurses after someone had hung a sticker up on her whiteboard at work. You never know where a sticker will lead!
