Dr. Katie’s chiropractic journey began after a potentially devastating injury as a young gymnast. After fracturing her back, Dr. Katie turned to chiropractic for help with her recovery, and soon realized that chiropractic was more than just treating low back pain. Her experience led her to devote her life to helping as many people as possible discover chiropractic and its incredible health and healing attributes.Chiropractic was a natural fit for Dr. Katie, as her parents were very health-conscious and holistic and she was raised to believe the body was designed to be healthy.

A humanitarian at heart, Dr. Katie is involved in the All Grace Outreach Charity, where she helps to build orphanages, takes care of the homeless and works to provide better living conditions. She is also involved in The Life on Life Initiative, a program dedicated to helping people gain functional freedom through literacy and other necessary life skills.
