She once treated a stroke patient who was initially discouraged and close to giving up. “We both learned and grew so much from our relationship – She learned how to walk again, and I learned how never to let someone give up on themselves,” Kate said.  Her philosophy is to listen to her patients’ needs, whether physical or emotional and treat from there and enjoys working with patients who are dedicated to their rehabilitation completely.

Kate stays active. When she’s not practicing in Tidewater’s Denbigh clinic, you can find her playing volleyball, trail running, paddle boarding, kayaking, and boating. Kate has one quote that she goes by, “As long as your gut, heart, and head are all aligned, you can never make a wrong decision”.
