About

Katie Duke completed her Doctorate of Physical therapy (DPT) at Idaho State University. Katie grew up in the Treasure Valley playing competitive soccer, which sparked her interest in health and fitness. She began her college education at University of South Carolina, where she received the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Award for Academic Excellence while playing Division I soccer for the Gamecocks. She continued her soccer career at Boise State University, earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Health Science and the Western All Conference (WAC) All Academic Award.

She has continued her post doctorate education in orthopedics and manual therapy by completing an orthopedic residency in 2016 as well as earning her Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) certificate.

Katie is dedicated to helping her patients reach their personal goals and prevent future injury through manual therapy, soft tissue mobilization, education, and functional strengthening. Katie has two children which has increased her interest in working with prenatal and post partum athletes. She hopes to continue her education in women’s health in order to improve her ability to keep moms active and meet their individual goals. Katie loves the outdoors and can usually be found running on the Greenbelt pushing at least one kid in a stroller.
