Kathy Yochum was the Manager of the Physical Therapy Department at Christian Northeast-Northwest Hospital from 1983 through 1993.  After graduating from Washington University in 1959, she began her career as a Staff Physical Therapist at the St. Louis Veterans Administration Hospital from 1959 through 1967.  In 1967, Kathy began working at Halls Ferry Manor in North County and continued to consult there until 1983.  Kathy also worked as a full time Staff Physical Therapist first at Christian Hospital Northwest and then at Christian Hospital Northeast from the late 1970’s through 1983 when she became manager of the Department.

Kathy very strongly believed in education and life-long learning.  Kathy wanted every student to have a wonderful learning experience and fought to have the position of Center Coordinator of Clinical Education initiated while she was Manager.  Student learning was not the only area of education that Kathy supported.  Kathy was a very strong advocate of her staff going to continuing education courses, coming back and teaching others, and immediately putting what they learned in those courses into action with patients.  In many ways, Kathy Yochum was a role model of what good support for educational programs should look like.
