A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Katie has been a Physical Therapist since 2006 working in outpatient orthopedics in Colorado and Minnesota. Her undergraduate degree in Athletic Training gives her a strong background in sports but she enjoys working with people of all ages and abilities, returning them to the activities that are important to them. She treats all orthopedic conditions but has a special interest in lower body injuries. Katie uses a wide variety of treatment techniques which may include manual therapy, Pilates, blood flow restriction therapy, and targeted exercises.
Spare Time Activities
Katie spends most of her spare time with her husband, 2 kids, and dogs trying to get outside as much as possible playing in the yard, gardening, camping, hiking, and kid’s sports activities. When she gets some time to herself, she likes to do something active like yoga, running, skiing, group fitness class, Pilates, or just taking a walk in her neighborhood.

What Patients Are Saying
Prior to shoulder treatment at OSI, the pain got so bad I was convinced that only some sort of invasive procedure would fix me. My GP recommended physical therapy and I agreed, although secretly doubtful that exercise and posture would help. When I started with Katie, I was taking alternate doses of Tylenol and Advil a few hours apart, icing, and various menthol topicals. Now I need none of these. I feel better in my upper back, neck and shoulder than I have in years. I am so thankful to have discovered PT as a resource for chronically poor body mechanics. Katie never lectured me. She listened and seemed to adjust her treatment based on my feedback. And it worked! Top of the line treatment. I would recommend Katie without reservation.
