Born and raised in the central valley of California, Katie has always loved living in California, earning her BS from the University of California Santa Barbara, and then receiving her Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from Chapman University in 2011. She also has the special distinction of being a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist (OCS), and has completed all coursework for The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) training for the spine. Katie is experienced in treating the full spectrum of orthopedic and sports-related injuries and surgeries in children and adults.
Katie’s love for orthopedic and sports physical therapy began as a freshman in high school when she injured her knee in soccer, tearing her ACL. After working countless hours with physical therapists, she was able to get back on the field and also go on to play competitive volleyball. She continues to have a great interest in ACL injury prevention and rehabilitation. If she isn’t working in the clinic, you can find her running a marathon, playing classical piano, raising money for 18-mile night walks for suicide awareness, or cooking up a storm for a themed dinner party.
