The Early Years
Dr. Katherine Noble is Northern California born and raised. After primary and secondary education at local schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, she graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Highest Distinction in General Scholarship (equivalent of Summa Cum Laude) from the University of California, Berkeley, with a B.A. in Integrative Biology and a minor in music. She completed a year in Boston working in targeted chemotherapy cancer research and returned to California to continue her medical education.
Medical Degree & Residency
She received her medical degree from The University of California, San Francisco where she served as medical student body president, and was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. She completed her pediatric residency training at Harvard-affiliated Boston Children’s Hospital, one of the leading children’s hospitals in the country. There, she developed a passion for taking care of a diverse patient population, particularly those children with very complex or chronic health conditions.
She went on to live in Tokyo, Japan from 2001 to 2003, where she engaged in clinical work and medical education research at The National Center for Child Health and Development.
Dr. Katy has had a niche practice since her arrival to Lower Fairfield County in 2003. While she has held to a part-time working arrangement when her children were young, she has nonetheless been unwavering in her practice philosophy and commitment to her patients. She decided to start her own practice in 2015, believing it was just the right time to exercise her full professional potential. She is the founder and managing partner of Sound Beach Pediatrics.
At Home & In The Community
Dr. Katy loves to care for both healthy children and medically complex patients in the community. She is a tireless advocate for her patients and families, whether they are facing a medical crisis or socioeconomic barriers to care. Dr. Katy has been a contributing author for Serendipity Magazine. For over 15 years, she has given numerous interactive presentations to parents and prospective parents in the community in the spirit of promoting health and wellness. She has been an inspirational guest speaker for the Connecticut Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and has spoken at both hospital and community events.
Of equal importance, Dr. Katy has spoken to student audiences at Bridges School (where she has served as a member of the Bridges School Board), Christ Church Nursery School, Old Greenwich School, Greenwich Country Day School, and Greenwich High School on a wide array of health topics. She was appointed as the Medical Advisor for the Greenwich Public School System in March 2020 and has been an outspoken advocate for getting children safely back to school during the COVID19 pandemic. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatrics.
She leads an active life in Old Greenwich with her husband and three children. She loves running, many sports, all things outdoors, music and classical piano . . . especially when sharing these interests with her family and friends. If she is not working, you are most likely to find her wearing her favorite old blue jeans, jogging around Tod’s Point, or walking her dog with her husband.
