"My goal is to assist patients with their rehabilitation to regain as much normal function as possible, while having fun along the way!"


Kathleen started her career at OSSR in 1999 as a physical therapist assistant. Over the years her desire for furthering her education led her to complete her degree in physical therapy in 2008.  She is now a practicing orthopedic physical therapist with additional interests in female and male pelvic floor dysfunctions/disorders including pelvic pain and urinary incontinence. 

Professionally, Kathleen is currently working toward her Pelvic Floor Specialist certification through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. She is working on submitting a case study using manual therapy skills to address pelvic floor and visceral dysfunctions to be published and is currently scheduled to continue with NAIOMT courses this year.
