Sandra Kattan, RN, BS, MS, CAP
I am a Registered Nurse with a master’s degree in mental health counseling and am also a certified Substance Abuse Professional. I received my associate’s degree and RN from Miami-Dade Community College, my bachelor’s degree in health education from Florida International University, and my master’s degree at St. Thomas University. For the past 20+ years, I have specialized in substance abuse and psychiatry. I have worked as an independent consultant/care manager with a guardianship company, which provided me with lots of opportunities to be creative and be involved in some amazing success stories. Prior to that, I spent 10 years at a drug treatment center where I worked as a Detox Nurse, Drug and Alcohol Counselor, Outpatient Administrator, Admissions Nurse, and Interim Director of Nursing. I have a great husband, 3 children, and 2 wonderful grandsons. My hobbies include traveling, visiting my grandsons, and swimming. My basic life philosophy has always been, “Work to achieve the best possible quality of life, things can always improve, keep your sense of humor, and never give up.”
