Born and raised in Edmonton, Kate has always loved the sense of community this city has to offer. For her, it’s all about connection and empowerment. She takes the time to really get to know her clients and hear their stories, and then works together with them to come up with a treatment plan that suits each person’s unique goals and lifestyle. She will help you understand your injury and give you the skills to successfully get out of pain and return to doing what you love at an even higher capacity than before.
Seeing Kate for PT while I recover from surgery of a broken kneecap. Kate made me feel comfortable and like I was in good hands with her compassion, friendliness and knowledge. I left my first appointment with a clear plan forward. Everyone I interacted with were professional and friendly.
Kate has a strong background in sports and athletics. She completed her Masters of Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta in 2019 following a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. She has been a part of the Edmonton fitness industry for over 5 years, first as a group fitness instructor and then as a physiotherapist. She has worked as a fitness coach at Orange Theory and as a Pilates instructor, and is constantly exploring new physical pursuits herself. Ask her if she’s tried something: she probably has at least once, and if she hasn’t she will want to! Kate believes that movement is essential, not only for successful recovery from injury but for future injury prevention and for overall quality of life. You can count on your physio sessions with her to be educational and exercise-focused, supplemented with some targeted manual therapy and hands on treatment.
When she’s not in the clinic you’ll find Kate in the river valley or in the mountains exploring and moving, whether it be through hiking, running, rock climbing, or skiing. She also loves painting and drawing.
Pro tip: Kate has a mad sweet-tooth. If you want to get on her good side, bring her any kind of cookie or baked good and she will love you forever.
