Licensed Massage Therapist, Chiropractic Assistant
Katie comes to PCG with 10 years of experience in the healing field. She began practicing Yoga at the age of 15 and became a Certified Yoga Teacher by the age of 21. Her studies in Yoga have taken her to India 3 times. Katie has since spent over a year in this inspiring country, teaching Yoga to Tibetans with PTSD and furthering her education in healing the body. She even spent 4 months backpacking the country with her husband and young son!
Between her travels Katie is happy to call Portland home. She is in constant awe of the natural beauty of the PNW. Inspired by the diverse healing nature of plants, she has spent the past 5 years studying and teaching botanical medicine. Just before pursuing Massage Therapy, Katie worked with the Senior population teaching Balance and Fall prevention, Yoga, and Tai Chi for Better Balance. Katie is a graduate of East West College with a focus on deep tissue, neuromuscular (trigger point therapy), and Thai massage (available on Saturdays!).
In her free time you will find Katie zipping about on her bike, hiking the Gorge with her family, or crocheting while listening to books on tape.
