Kate is a physical therapist. She is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia to provide physical therapy services. She was voted Danville’s Favorite Physical Therapist by Showcase Magazine in January 2011.
Kate became a physical therapist because it allows her to combine everything that she wants in a career: working with people, using her hands, solving problems, and studying science. She says, “Physical therapy allows me put these all together to help people improve the quality of their lives. People come in hurting and unable to do what they want to do, but by the time they leave, they’re usually happy and smiling!”
Kate earned a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from Thiel College in Greenville, Pennsylvania before pursuing physical therapy at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina.
Prior to joining Danville Orthopedic & Athletic Rehab in 1993, Kate was a staff physical therapist at the University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Outside of work, Kate enjoys interior decorating and spending time with her husband, Mark, and their dogs.
