About Kathie

Nurse Practitioner Kathie Galias joined Family Medicine in March 2007.  She feels blessed to work with such a dynamic group of women and Dr. Lesser here at Family Medicine serving families in northern Illinois.
Kathie enjoys riding her bike with friends and visiting the Lucky Brake Bike Shop in Crystal Lake. “I like the challenge of participating in triathlons and working out with my husband,” says Kathie. She also loves Saturday morning coffee with girlfriends and sleeping in on Sunday mornings.
While exercise and fitness are interests of Kathie’s, she loves visiting her children in California and Italy. “I enjoy going to the pool with my granddaughter. But mostly my favorite time of the day is relaxing on the porch with my husband of 32 years!”


Nurse Practitioner Galias completed her undergraduate degree in nursing at William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, Illinois. She received her Bachelors and Masters of Science in Nursing at the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois. She achieved her doctorate at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville.

She is board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
