Kathy Irvine Lorenzato earned a degree in piano performance before she learned about music therapy and realized she needed more than life in a practice room could offer. She graduated from California State University, Long Beach in 1981 with a certificate of music therapy. Upon moving to Davis, she found no work available in music therapy so she took a job typing in the basement of UC Davis Medical Center. Eventually she convinced Pediatrics to give her a home, and has been happily working there for the past 17 years. Kathy is married with two remarkable and funny teenagers, and a big, orange dog.
