Katie’s fascination with the human body began as a young athlete, plagued by overuse injuries. She learned through rehabilitation of her own injuries the positive impact that physical therapy can have on a person’s life and chose to pursue a career in physical therapy.
She understands both the resiliency of the human body but also the imperative need to care for it in a responsible manner, which is why patient education is at the core of her care. She believes that educating patients about their bodies and injuries can empower them to make necessary changes for optimal results.
Katie graduated with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University Arizona School of Health Sciences in 2012. As a student, she was active in the American Physical Therapy Association, serving on student boards and participating in advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill, earning her Dean’s Scholarship in her final year.
Katie continued her passion for professional involvement as a board member of the Arizona Physical Therapy Association in which she served as District Representative.
Katie enjoys hiking and spending time in the outdoors with her family.
