Kate Godly is the owner of Primitive Wellness, a family practice and yoga studio. One of her main focus areas as a medical professional is lactation – helping mothers with the crucial task of breastfeeding.
Before starting her own business, Kate worked at a clinic, where she would see an average of 19 patients a day. There, she felt like she was simply sticking a band-aid on the patient’s problem, rather than giving them the best possible care.
This proved to be an all-important part of the motivation for breaking away from the traditional clinic work and starting up her own business – on her own terms. Satisfying her own professional ambitions while increasing the quality of the care she is giving her patients.
Kate Godly is part of American Underground in Durham, North Carolina, also known as the start-up capital of the South.
