info:
I have always been a fan of Grey’s Anatomy, and I like to imagine if Dr. McDreamy were a physical therapist, he would start every day with the quote, “It’s a beautiful day to fix bodies.” I believe that every patient can achieve their best version of themself. I strive to use my expertise in physical therapy to help patients achieve their goals with various techniques, skills, and evidence-based practice. My goal is to make sure every patient feels heard, acknowledged, and motivated to get back to their best self. To become your best self, a person must believe in themself and be active in their recovery. My role is to guide them through that process and give them the necessary tools for a successful restoration. I treat my patients like family and enjoy creating lifelong relationships in the process of their recovery.

As a Bay Area native and a non-traditional student, she completed her BS in Kinesiology from San Jose State University, and her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Pacific University. With a passion for learning and an endless curiosity, Kat combines evidence based practice and treating the whole person, not just one body part.

Kat has completed APTA’s level 1 pelvic health coursework, and has experience working with individuals assigned female at birth with urinary issues, pelvic organ prolapse, and pelvic pain. She plans to continue her pelvic coursework to further her ability to work with all types of pelvises.
