  • AS Physical Therapist Assistant - Bay State College
  • NASM CPT - National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • RYT200 - Aimfree Yoga Teacher Training

As a practicing Physical Therapist Assistant for over seven years, Katie decided to branch out into the fitness world in order to address some of the issues that she feels are all too common in the general population. In the past, many of Katie’s clients have demonstrated limited insight into the importance of health and wellness, both physically and emotionally. Katie hopes to bring awareness to the benefits of physical fitness on one’s emotional well-being.

Katie’s fitness journey began six years ago when she began training for a half marathon. While Katie reached her goal, and has since finished many road races, the repetition of distance running took a toll on her body. Katie has since found that a combination of weightlifting, yoga, and hiking are much more beneficial for her body. Katie believes that balance is the key to all things, and she strives to bring balance into her clients’ lives with a combination of functional movement training and yoga. As a Certified Personal Trainer, Register Yoga Teacher, and with her background in Physical Therapy, Katie is driven to educate and motivate her clients to see the power of mindfulness in movement.
