Katie graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Science (Physiotherapy) after moving from Tasmania to pursue her studies. Her keen interest in physiotherapy has stemmed from a lifestyle always involved in sports and fitness. Outside of being a physiotherapist, Katie plays cricket professionally for Western Australia, and has played for both the Western Fury and Perth Scorchers following playing for her home state Tasmania in her younger years. Her love of sport discovered a deeper interest in the human body and musculoskeletal physiotherapy. Her background allows her to draw on her own experiences in sport and elite environments to translate into treating acute sporting conditions and the rehabilitation process for a wide range of injuries. Since commencing her at Sportreat, Katie has developed a particular interest in injury prevention for adolescent athletes, and overuse conditions such as plantar fasciitis and shin splints. She has also particularly enjoyed helping people overcome lower-back pain as well as neck problems. Since completing her Degree, Katie has attained further professional development competencies in dry needling and rock tape application. Looking ahead, she hopes to begin getting involved with local sporting teams, complete training Pilates to further her holistic management repertoire, as well as undertake further studies in Masters in Sports Physiotherapy.
