Hello, all! My name is Kristine Ostertag, I am the new physical therapist assistant at the Maplewood location. I have officially made the trek across the river to Minnesota! I am from the small town of Spring Valley, Wisconsin and enjoy the outdoors anything from hunting, fishing, to even just taking walks with my German wirehaired pointer.
I also enjoy weightlifting and biking. I spend a lot of my time at my cabin in Shell Lake, WI with my family where we enjoy the outdoors. I have two sisters and myself being the middle child.
I started my education at UW-Eau Claire with kinesiology as my major. I was only there for a year before I transferred to UW-La Crosse where I earned my bachelors degree in Exercise Sports Science and continued by my love for fitness and became an NASM certified personal trainer. I personal trained for a year at Snap Fitness before going back to school at Western Technical College in LaCrosse for my Physical Therapist Assistant degree. I am thrilled to be joining an incredible team of experienced and compassionate therapist at OSI. I am also looking forward to helping patients feel better and reach their goals of getting back to the things they love to do. In addition to being in the clinic, I will also be doing the aquatics program at Maplewood!
