Career: Doctor Kate Heightmeyer has a degree in psychology and worked for a time with Stargate Command on Earth before being recommended for the Atlantis expedition on its maiden trip. She worked also worked as a couples' therapist for a time before her experience with Atlantis.
She provides psycho-therapy support to the expedition members during times of difficulty including assisting Teyla in understanding her Wraith dreams (S1 The Gift), providing support to Rodney McKay and Laura Cadman in coping with their situation when both occupied McKay’s body (S2 Duet), working in the humanisation of Michael (S2 Michael), advising Elizabeth Weir on hallucinations and mandatory days off (S3 Echoes, Sunday) and advising on nightmares (S4 Doppelganger).
Kate was killed in the line of duty when she was infected by the crystal entity from M3X387. It used her fear of heights and falling to create a dream scenario that stopped her heart. She was discovered in her quarters by Teyla and Jennifer Keller.
Female Friendships: After a prickly start, Kate enjoyed a friendship with Teyla. It is also likely that she was a confidante to Elizabeth Weir, (and potentially to Sam Carter) during her leadership.

Yeah, I didn't know about it either. I was a bit surprised when I went to the wiki to check I hadn't missed anything and there was this whole detailed section on her education and career. I admit I thought they'd made it up but then they referenced the extra.
I think I'll leave it in for the time being and see if anyone else would prefer it to be taken out. :)
