Katie Duke's Biography

Katie Duke Speaker Profile: 

Born and raised in St. Louis, MO, Katie Duke left in her mid 20’s to pursue a feeling inside her that there was “something greater out there”, and that feeling led her to New York City. New York proved to be the right move for Duke. It was the energy of the city that inspired her to find her purpose, leave a very abusive relationship, complete her education, and provided opportunities that opened up new chapters in her life.

One of those chapters was being a featured Emergency Room Nurse on the Primetime ABC Medical Documentary series “NY MED”, and its spinoff,  “NY ER” on the Oprah Winfrey Network, TLC, and Discovery Life Channels. Albeit she had a controversial turn on NY Med related to a post on social media, she realized that the best way to work through life’s tough lessons is to own your mistakes. For the last 6 years she has been dedicated to leading others by sharing her good and bad experiences and lessons, and empowering others to embrace and grow from their not so glorious moments.

Duke started with an Associates Degree in Nursing From Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish Hospital College in St. Louis, and finished her BSN at City University of New York- Hunter College. She completed her education with a Masters of Science in Nursing as an Adult Geriatric Acute Care Nurse Practitioner from Columbia University in the City of New York.

Ms Duke has 15 years experience in Nursing, with the last 4 years spent working as a Board Certified Acute Care Nurse Practitioner specializing in Inpatient Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery in New York City at one of the Nation’s top hospitals, Mount Sinai Hospital.

In addition to her full time career as an NP, she also serves as a clinical preceptor to NYU ACNP graduate students, editorial contributor, motivational speaker, mentor, agency represented social media influencer, hosts the “Bad Decisions Podcast”, and is the founder of the “Duke It Up Event” which is an empowerment and mentoring workshop.

Katie is respected most for her authentic, raw transparency and relatable content focusing on motivation, lifestyle, and professional career insights and guidance.

In 2019, the Katie Duke + Cherokee Uniforms Collection launched; making it the first collaborative scrubs collection in the world between a medical apparel brand and a Nursing Professional. The collection is an affordable, functional, and all-inclusive size line of trendy and classic pieces for all healthcare providers.

Over the course of building her personal platform, she has worked with global brands such as Cherokee Uniforms, Laneige, Prudential Financial, Clinique, Magee Women’s Research Institute, Nestle Boost Nutrition, Match.com, Dentyne, Kaplan NCLEX Prep, Anisa Beauty, Panera, Jet.com, SoFi Financial, Littmann Stethoscopes, Swimsuits For All, Easy Spirit, Nurses Travel Network, and more. She has been featured in global women’s empowerment media campaigns alongside Ashley Graham, Brooke Shields, and Angela Simmons.

In addition to continuing her inpatient NP career, Katie Duke’s 2 year goals include authoring a book about embracing your bad decisions and mistakes as a stepping stone to success, expanding her motivational event series, growing her Collection with Cherokee Uniforms, and branching into lifestyle products to help the everyday professional woman find work + life balance.
