Kate earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2009 from Carroll University
in Waukesha, Wisconsin. In a former life, she graduated with a double
major in Geology and Anthropology from Rice University. After traveling
and working in New Zealand at an outpatient PT clinic, she decided to
go back to school and pursue a different career path.
She enjoys working with a diverse patient population, athlete, and non-athlete
alike. She has training in joint mobilization and manipulation, soft tissue
mobilization, trigger point dry needling, and exercise prescription; used
in combination to maximize each person’s potential and return to
function and recreation.
During her time at Rice, Kate swam competitively, specializing in the distance
freestyle and butterfly events. She was honored for her accomplishments
by having an annual award presented for dedication, discipline, leadership,
consistent hard-work, and commitment to the team concept renamed after
her. She also went on to qualify and compete in the US Olympic Trials in 2000.
Originally from Wisconsin, Kate loves to travel but has settled with her
husband and three children in Colorado. In her free time, Kate enjoys
hiking / snowshoeing, cycling, swimming, and photography.
