"I feel so lucky to have my passions as my work - to use my heart, head, and hands to help change lives"

-Katherine Skaggs, M.D.


Dr. Katherine “Kate” Skaggs, brings nearly 30 years of OB/GYN experience to her patients at Divine Savior.  Growing up in Oconomowoc, WI and spending fifteen years near Vail, Colorado, Dr. Skaggs has a great passion for the waterways and outdoors. She loves to kayak, canoe, hike, snowshoe, and go camping. 

Dr. Skaggs chose to practice at Divine Savior due to its central location, significant access to water, and similar size to her hometown of Oconomowoc. She also enjoys the consistent smiles and kindness she receives from people known and unknown to her throughout the community and values Divine Savior’s commitment to providing immediate access to expert care. In spite of many options, the providers here have chosen to be here to provide personalized, kind, expert care to patients in a beautiful setting.

In addition to her OB/GYN practice, Dr. Skaggs is certified in Death and Grief studies and can help her patients explore their feelings following a difficult diagnosis, a miscarriage, or loss of loved one.  She enjoys making her patients truly feel listened to, even if the topic is a tough one. She enjoys creating respectful, honest, and fun relationships with patients, their families, and the hospital staff.

Dr. Skaggs has previously served as an assistant professor for the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has significant third-world medicine experience, is fluent in French, and can play the flute, guitar, and piano.
