After tearing her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in high school during basketball practice, Katie was introduced to physical therapy. She was inspired by the profession and developed a passion for assisting others who have experienced injury. She understands the physical and mental challenges that come along with injury and is committed to assisting patients in both areas to allow for confidence when returning back to work, life, or sports.
Katie graduated with honors from Creighton University with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2003. She has an extensive background in the pediatric and adult orthopedic realms. She is a consultant for many area athletic teams educating coaches on proper warm up and cool down along with implementation of injury prevention techniques. She has contributed articles to several medical and sports related publications on ACL rehabilitation and prevention. In her youth, Katie participated in several sports including volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, and soccer. In college, she became a Division I athlete and was voted captain of Creighton University’s women’s soccer team in her undergraduate career. She tallied several all conference academic and athletic honors including the team award for “Most Inspirational Player.”
Katie has been involved in coaching youth soccer, volleyball, and basketball. She has been a member of the American Physical Therapy Association’s orthopedic specialty section since 2001. Katie truly loves her profession as she is able to share her passion for health and wellness with her patients every day. When she is not working, Katie enjoys playing soccer, attending concerts, participating in triathlons, boating, hiking, and downhill skiing.
Fun fact: Katie always looks up the ending of scary movies before she watches them.
