Wayzata, MN — Katherine A. Daly, MD, is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Trusted Healthcare Professional in the Medical field, acknowledging her exemplary work with Fairview Health Services.

Board-certified and fellowship-trained, Dr. Daly is a child psychiatrist at Fairview Health Services, where she has been in practice for 11 years. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Fairview is “the health service that heals from the heart” and proudly serves as Minnesota’s choice for healthcare. An industry-leading, award-winning nonprofit organization, Fairview offers a complete network of healthcare services. Its broad network is designed to be ready for each patient’s needs while delivering compassionate quality care.

In pursuit of her education, Dr. Daly obtained a Medical Doctor (M.D.) degree in 1992 from the University of Minnesota Medical School, followed by an internship in 1993 with Loyola Medicine MacNeal Hospital. She completed residencies in pediatrics in 1996 and psychiatry in 1998. Subsequently, she undertook fellowship training in child and adolescent psychiatry in 2000 with the University of Minnesota Medical School. In addition, Dr. Daly holds certifications in pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics, psychiatry from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and child and adolescent psychiatry from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She is licensed to practice medicine in the state of Minnesota.

To remain aware of changes and advancements in her field, Dr. Daly maintains affiliations with the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the American Medical Association, and the American Psychiatric Association.

She feels the key to her success has been stubbornness and persistence. She hopes to inspire other young women to go for their dreams.

Dr. Daly also attributes her success to doing a lot of hard work. With every career experience she has had, she learned and kept a lesson from each of them. She was initially inspired to enter her profession because of her love for helping people. When she was a gynecologist and obstetrician at Loyola, she discovered that she was really interested in maternal-fetal bonding. Dr. Daly also found that psychiatry allowed her to investigate that more than she was able to do in pediatrics, and so she decided to go into that discipline.

In the coming years, Dr. Daly would like to pursue child-parent interaction. She also hopes to work with family bonding and interactions because she thinks that is important. Lastly, she would love to continue to look at how pharmacological interventions can assist with family interactions and bonding.

Outside of work, Dr. Daly enjoys being outdoors and water activities.
