Katherine is a dually-licensed clinical and school psychologist. She brings training and expertise in psychoeducational assessment, neuropsychological evaluation, and family-based interventions to her teaching and supervision in the school psychology program. Knowing of the importance of the roles and decisions school psychologists make in a daily basis and aware of the immense impact they can have on children, families, and the school community, Dr. Lee feels it is imperative that all students in the college who pursue this profession be equipped with the factual knowledge, training experiences, communication skills, and self-awareness needed to be effective in their work and advocacy. Dr. Lee earned her bachelor's degree from Princeton University and later attended Teachers College, Columbia University where she completed both her master's and doctoral degrees. She serves as the field experience coordinator for the program, as the university liaison for the Nevada Association of School Psychologists, and as the social chair for the Princeton Alumni Association of Nevada.

As of 2022, Katherine also is proud to provide University service as a certificated mediator through the Ombuds Office. From her training with Professor Margaret Crowley, she embraces the value of facilitative mediation. She approaches mediation with a compassionate open mind to assist parties with their communication in efforts to refocus them on their share interests rather than opposing positions.
