Kristin Ramsey, MA, ATR, RYT-500
Art Therapist

 

Education: BS in Architecture at Penn State University; MA in Art Therapy at George Washington University

Location: Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital

Joined Tracy’s Kids November 2015

Favorite Artists: Gustav Klimt, Lee Krasner, Vincent Van Gogh

Favorite Place: It is truly hard to pick just one. My top three would have to be Rishikesh, India; Karmoy, Norway; and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Artistic Interests: Found art, collage, acrylic paint, bookmaking
Reflection: “I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.” –Georgia O’Keefe

My greatest accomplishments: I would have to say that aside from my children, following my heart to switch careers from architecture to art therapy, and being able to join the team of Tracy’s Kids in the process, is absolutely one of my greatest accomplishments. That and hiking in the Himalayas.

A highlight of my work this year: Completing my 500-hour yoga therapy certification and being able to combine therapeutic yoga with art therapy.
