Katie graduated from Australian Catholic University with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy with first class honours. During her studies, Katie actively sought opportunities to develop her physio skills including working as a physiotherapy assistant on the orthopaedic ward at Ipswich Hospital and various positions as a sports trainer. A highlight was working with AFLW teams which she continues into 2020.
This particularly has developed Katie’s passion for women’s sport. Katie has a keen interest in women’s health and sports physiotherapy. She has completed her level 1 APA sports physiotherapy qualification and her level 1 APA Women's health qualification. These are the first steps towards specialisation in these fields. Katie is also the main physiotherapist currently working with the Villanova College First XV rugby team.
Katie has completed her western acupuncture and dry needling certification meaning she is able to use dry needling techniques where this is indicated.
Katie takes our falls and balance program on Monday mornings and enjoys seeing the improvements that this cohort of patients makes with their falls prediction metrics.
Katie also takes our physio movement and conditioning sessions on Monday and Friday where she is able to make exercise based rehab safe, fun and effective.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys keeping active with running and latin dance classes. She also volunteers with Radio Lollipop at the Queensland Children’s Hospital.
