Kathryn graduated with her B.S. in Health & Exercise Science from Wake Forest University in 2007 and went on to receive her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 2010.  Prior to joining TurningPoint in 2021, Kathryn spent ten years working in a hospital-based outpatient orthopedic clinic in Charlotte, NC.  During this time, she utilized a movement system impairments approach to treatment in conjunction with manual therapy and dry needling techniques.  Throughout her career, Kathryn’s practice specialty and passion have been in women’s health care with an emphasis on pelvic health, pregnancy and post-partum, lymphedema and breast cancer care.  She served as an item writer for the ABPTS Specialist Certification examination for Women’s Health Physical Therapy and had the opportunity to present a poster presentation at APTA’s Combined Sections Meeting in 2011. Kathryn is a Board-Certified Clinical Specialist in Women’s Health Physical Therapy, Certified Lymphedema Therapist, an APTA Certified Clinical Instructor, and STAR Clinician Certified.  

TurningPoint is a special place because it enables me to pursue and advance my passion for women’s health through direct patient care, research, and educating both medical and non-medical peers about the critical importance of breast cancer physical therapy care. 

Something fun no one knows about me is that I love long-distance running while pushing my young kids in the jogging stroller, and dream of running the Boston Marathon one day (but maybe not with a jogging stroller)!
