Catherine D'Ambrosio, Ph.D.
A native of St. Louis, Mo., D’Ambrosio received her BSN in Nursing from the University of Missouri. Then, it was on to the University of Pennsylvania for a Master’s degree and the University of Washington for her Ph.D., both in Nursing. She is a clinical assistant professor at the University of Washington School of Nursing and working at Virginia Mason Medical Center as a nursing analyst.
“Much of the work done by our Washington State Community Colleges seriously and positively affects the health and functional outcomes of our entire community,” D’Ambrosio says. “I would like to support our community by working through our local community college and expanding its reach and its effect on our community, our society and our world.”
D’Ambrosio was appointed to serve the remaining three years of the Pos. 1 term formerly held by Roger Olstad. She is eligible to then serve two full five-year terms. More
