Catherine King has been with the Community Care Clinic since 2010 and has been the Executive Director since March of 2020. She has served in many roles at the clinic including accountant, data management and collection, assistant to the Executive Director, grant writer and Interim Executive Director.
She graduated with a BSIE from Purdue University in 1981 and worked as a manufacturing engineer for various manufacturing companies in Ohio and North Carolina. She also worked as a consultant for manufacturers in implementing and maintaining ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems. After moving to Boone in 2004, Catherine worked part-time as the Parish Administrator for St Luke’s Episcopal Church while maintaining her consulting practice.
Catherine finds this challenge of directing a health care organization in this era of Covid-19 and beyond to be fulfilling and rewarding. The mission of the CCC – “providing quality health care to low-income uninsured adults” is vital in maintaining a healthy community.

Psychology ASU Intern
“I’m Corrie, a senior undergraduate at ASU, majoring in Psychology with a concentration in Human Services. Originally from Durham, NC, my heart was stolen by the Blue Ridge Mountains, leading me to call Boone my home. As I approach my graduation in December 2023, I anticipate receiving a Bachelor’s in Psychology. My next step is to pursue a Masters in Social Work at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, with the ultimate goal of obtaining a License for Clinical Social Work. Looking ahead, I’m considering the possibility of earning a PhD or Psy.D in Clinical Psychology.My future holds a vision of owning a clinic that offers a wide range of clinical mental health services, prioritizing accessibility and affordability for my community. This aspiration is fueled by my dedication to creating a positive impact. This semester, I’m excited to intern at the Community Care Clinic, where I’m eager to learn, grow, and wholeheartedly serve the High Country community.”
