Chaplain Libby Watrous
Kennewick General Hospital Chaplain
Libby was raised in Tennessee, and has been a local resident of the Tri-Cities since 1973. She has played the piano since
age 3 and has numerous degrees in music education. She worked with children ages birth through five years of age with disabilities until she began a long career of teaching piano, music appreciation and ear training at Columbia Basin College.
In 1996, Libby received a harp from her husband, which she says has changed their lives. She studied privately in Portland and Coeur D’Alene.
In 2004, she studied harp therapy outside Philadelphia, interned at a Robert Wood Johnson hospital in Trenton, and returned home to volunteer as a harpist throughout the Tri-Cities, but most importantly in The Chaplaincy’s Hospice House.
More recently, she says she is enormously grateful to be a participant in the Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) training provided by The Chaplaincy, and is delighted to be the new Chaplain at Kennewick General Hospital.
