Kate graduated from the College of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Sport and Exercise Studies (Hons) with Great Distinction. She fell in love with learning about the science of human movement while completing her undergraduate degree and was eager to continue her studies after graduation. Kate immediately applied for admission to the School of Rehabilitation Science and received her Master of Physical Therapy degree shortly after.
Kate has extensive experience in helping people of all ages continue to participate in the activities they enjoy. For example, she enjoys helping athletes return to sport after injury and developing strength and conditioning programs to prevent re-injury. She also has a special interest in post-operative knee rehabilitation, foot/ankle injuries, chronic hip pain, neck and shoulder injuries.
In addition, Kate is the program lead for Peak Arthritis, an 8-week exercise program that combines education and neuromuscular training to help individuals living with Osteoarthritis manage their symptoms and delay disease progression. She feels grateful to be in a position where she can empower older adults by teaching them the fundamentals of movement and strength training as a pain management strategy.
Kate enjoys spending as much time outdoors as possible – which is a large reason why she moved to Calgary! She has been loving having more opportunities to be active outside, such as hiking, Nordic skiing, snowboarding and running.
