KATHLEEN SHEPHERD- General Surgery Attending - TAKEN
Bio: Teenagers; they think that they’re invincible. That the worst outcome of any situation couldn’t possibly happen to them. That had been exactly what Kathleen Shepherd thought at age sixteen when getting involved with a married man. They’d kept their affair a secret. They’d been using protection. They’d been safe, or so she thought. However, the pretty pink plus sign on the 99 cent pregnancy test she’d taken on the night of her junior year homecoming dance clearly stated otherwise. Nine months later Kathleen welcomed Mallory Rae Shepherd into this world all on her own and raised her with the support of her friends and family, and without the man who’d knocked her up in the first place. It was a struggle to say the least, but… she survived.
With the help of those around her, Kathleen managed to graduate high school and obtain her Bachelors of Science in Biology at New York University. She worked three jobs at a time in order to support herself and her daughter as she went on to continue her education at New York University School of Medicine. After graduating third in her class she proceeded to complete both her internship and residency at New York Presbyterian, where she is currently an attending of general surgery — though she won’t be staying there for long.
After receiving a panicked phone call from her twenty six year old regarding some secret her daughter has kept from her for the past two years, Kathleen has decided to not just visit Seattle, but move there permanently. However, Mallory isn’t the only one who’s been hiding something. Kathleen’s got a secret of her own and it’s about time she came clean.
