Kathleen Erkkila, LPN
Kathy joined the May Institute nursing team in 2005 as a medication nurse at the May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities in Randolph. After that, she worked in our Arlington location before becoming head nurse at our school in Woburn in 2009.
Kathy is a dedicated staff member and a go-to-person in Woburn. She goes above and beyond on a daily basis. A valued member of the nursing council, she works hard to ensure that she meets all criteria of her job, and continuously strives toward best practices.
Kathy will help her colleagues in anyway she can. In addition to developing practices, protocols and manuals, she assists with fundraising, finds members for the Human Rights Committee, puts together flyers, and plans events for students and staff.
Here’s what staff members in Woburn have to say about Kathy:
Thank you for your flexibility and for truly being a “Jill of all Trades” around here.
You are much more than just the nurse.
You always jump into any and all situations, and we cannot thank you enough.
We know you always have 1000 things going on, and we appreciate your dedication every day.
Kathy is a nurse who “works for a cause, not the applause; lives life to express, not to impress; and believes that being a nurse is more than just a job, it is a way of life.”* We salute her during Nurses Week 2015.
