Katie holds a passion for exercise! She firmly believes improving tissue strength improves tissue resistance [to injury], thus making it possible to stay as active as you desire throughout your whole life. Whether you're a young athlete building a base, an adult trying to maintain or rebuild, or an elder wanting to maintain or try something new, through proper exercise, most things are possible. When she heard the slogan "movement is medicine" her career path was clear.
Throughout grad school in Boston at Northeastern University, Katie worked with a variety of varsity and club athletes improving their strength and conditioning to sport specific needs. To name a few, she worked with men and women's track and field, baseball, rugby, lacrosse, crew, wrestling, gymnastics, swim/dive, alpine skiers, squash, tennis, and the fencing team throughout the years. Since earning her doctorate as a PT, she has been able to grow her exercise knowledge and pair it with specific manual therapies for injuries and surgeries.
Katie has goals to further her education by attaining her Sports Certified Specialist (SCS) in the next few years, as well as dig in to the world of post concussion rehab.
Since her gymnastics, pole vault, and powerlifting days are behind her, in her free time, Katie likes to hike and cool off with a craft beer and a board game afterwards. Ask me about my favorite (hike, board game, or beer)!
