Meet The Team
Catherine DeOrsey - Integrative Healthcare Solutions Founder and CEO
With a master’s degree in physical therapy, Catherine spent twenty years successfully working for top Fortune 500 pharmaceutical/biotech companies such as Abbott Laboratories, Biogen Idec, and Genentech. She has been consistently recognized for her leadership, and teamwork and collaboration.
Catherine is an innovator and has a keen eye for seeing what doesn’t yet exist. She created the first PT internship program at Westfield State University and non-branded disease state educational programs for healthcare providers before they existed in the pharma/biotech industry. She consistently creates partnerships with closed academic institutions that bring value in the era of no-access industry guidelines. After being diagnosed with Severe Crohn’s Disease, Catherine healed herself by changing her lifestyle and using holistic medicine. Through her personal healing journey, she became a certified health coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Catherine and her family have been severely affected by the Opioid Crisis through her brother’s twenty-year battle with addiction to his fatal overdose. Catherine sees how the gaps in our healthcare systems can negatively impact everyone’s well-being. Especially those dealing with substance use and mental health. Through IHS, Catherine sets out to create a new healthcare organization that transforms lives and brings healing to all communities.
