Katie Lindenfelser ‘02 completed her music therapy education at Augsburg College in 2002 and her master’s in music therapy at the University of Melbourne in 2007. Katie has worked in the palliative care and hospice field and found that children and families were especially responsive to music therapy and in need of services. She worked at Very Special Kids children’s hospice in Melbourne, Australia and returned to Minnesota to research the need for and to establish such a home in Minnesota. Since early 2009, Katie has been working to build Crescent Cove, formerly Children’s Lighthouse of Minnesota, to serve children and young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families through respite stays for the child and family as well as to provide loving and compassionate care at the end-of-life and beyond.
