After growing up in rural Victoria, Katie made the move to Melbourne to pursue a career and complete her double Bachelor of Health Science and Applied Science in Osteopathy. She always knew she wanted a career in healthcare that encompassed movement, science, and patient interaction; therefore, her passion for the profession came naturally.
Having previously worked for many years as a sports trainer in Australian Rules Football and cricket clubs, her expertise in management and rehabilitation for sporting injuries is evident. During this time, she has also undertaken extra training in myofascial needling and cupping, and advanced sports and kinesiology taping that she often uses with clients. Katie also teaches clinical Pilates at our Thornbury clinic and finds this an integral part of her rehabilitation process.
Katie’s passion for women’s health has grown over the years, with her undertaking further study at a university level in this area. In particular, her specific interests include pelvic floor concerns, sexual health concerns, and pre-and post-natal rehabilitation and management. Katie is sex-positive and LGBTIQA+ inclusive. She is also supportive of sex work and diverse relationship structures.
She is also a practitioner part of our Headache and Migraine management team, having undertaken extensive professional development in this area and continuous training.
Katie loves treating a patient’s body as a whole to form an in-depth understanding of a client’s condition and any underlying factors contributing.
