Why Katie Became A Physical Therapist
October 20, 2020 – As physical therapists we all have chose this line of work for a variety of reasons. Some may be personal and others may not be. In this week’s blog we are going to meet Katie, one of our physical therapy assistants, and learn more about her and why she chose physical therapy.
Katie was born and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska. After graduating from Grand Island Senior High, Katie attended the University of Nebraska Omaha where she received her Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. After completing her Bachelor’s degree Katie then attended Clarkson College where she obtained her Associate of Science in Physical Therapist Assistant degree graduating Summa Cum Laude. Katie is a current member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the Nebraska Physical Therapy Association. Katie has been an employee of Witte Physical Therapy since 2016 and works primarily in our Louisville clinic. She has been an invaluable asset in the treatment of different patients across the age spectrum.
I chose to be a physical therapist assistant to incorporate my interests of the human body, exercise and helping people as I get to experience all three each day. By being a physical therapist assistant I enjoy the direct daily patient care and relationships I form with various patient populations. Physical therapy means to me helping patients find ways through various techniques reach their personal goals whether big or small. Physical therapy offers many different specialties and healing pathways to cater to each patient and their particular needs.
At Witte Physical Therapy we have a great team with a variety of different backgrounds and interests to treat the patient as effectively as possible. It is this team that allows us to treat each patient individually based on the patient’s needs. Katie’s outlook on why she chose physical therapy is present in all our team members leading to a patient first physical therapy experience!
