Meet Katie Stevens

Katie started her nursing career at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital in London, after registering as a children’s nurse in 1997. It was following a move to the paediatric high-dependency unit at the Royal Brompton hospital that Katie first realised that caring holistically for children with complex medical needs and their families was the direction in which she wanted her career to go.

After starting her family in 2000, Katie took up a role as a children’s palliative care nurse at Demelza Kent in 2002, completed a degree in 2010 and took up a role as a lecturer at Canterbury Christchurch University in 2011, specialising in the children’s palliative care module.

Katie returned to Demelza in 2019 as Clinical Governance and Quality Lead Nurse, after completing a post-graduate certificate in teaching, taking on a project manager role at Children’s Hospices across London and completing her master's degree in 2020.

A passionate advocate for children’s palliative care, Katie is extremely proud to work at Demelza and puts the voice of the children and families firmly at the heart of her work.

Katie is married to Nigel and has two daughters and two stepdaughters and enjoys nothing more than spending time with her extended family.
