Dr. Katie works alongside Dr. Larissa serving patients in the Valparaiso area. She will be the first to tell you how much your body is capable of.
As an athlete throughout her entire life and up to the collegiate level, Dr. Katie has experienced aches and pains that can occur with physical activity as well as a grade four spondylolisthesis (which occurs when one of your vertebrae, the bones of your spine, slips out of place onto the vertebra below it).
Dr. Katie studied Kinesiology at the University of Montevallo while working as a Personal Trainer and Group Class Trainer as well as playing soccer and being active in her sorority. Her passion for chiropractic medicine began her senior year, when her spondylolisthesis increased from a grade two to a grade four. After multiple epidurals and bouts of physical therapy, she had only grown worse. It was not until she began her chiropractic journey that she saw not only results in her own health, but how incredibly well the body is connected.
After attending Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Katie moved to Colorado Springs, CO where she practiced for three years before moving back to Florida with her husband and two dogs. She is Webster Certified and currently working on her ICPA diplomate as well as her VOM certification.
