Following graduation, she completed a residency in orthopedic manual therapy, and is a Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy. She is also certified in concussion management and trigger point dry needling.
Katie has a strong background in athletics and has participated in a variety of sports throughout her life. In college, she was a Division I swimmer and water polo player, and enjoys working with overhead athletes. She has interest treating hip pain, running injuries, and the shoulder, but loves all aspects of physical therapy from weekend warriors to the elderly. In her free time, she likes to scuba dive, travel, fish, hunt, camp and be outdoors enjoying God’s creation. She recently gave birth to her first son, PJ, who will be 1-year-old in July.
