Katie is dedicated to providing the best care possible for each individual, encompassing a team-oriented approach to care and healing. As an aide, she is excited to gain valuable experiences and knowledge about exercise, anatomy and physiology, and patient care that will be integral to becoming a great future healthcare provider. While she realized she had a passion for fitness and health early in life, her experiences receiving physical therapy for scoliosis served as inspiration to pursue physical therapy as a career.
Katie is currently studying for her Bachelor of Science at Portland State University, with a major in Health Studies/Health Sciences and an emphasis in Pre-Physical Therapy. She previously received her Associates of Science from Mount Hood Community College. After graduating in the spring, she plans on applying for DPT programs throughout the Pacific Northwest.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys playing jazz saxophone, cooking, snowshoeing and snowboarding up on Mount Hood. She also enjoys exploring new places with her family and friends.
