Katie is a Colorado Native raised in Evergreen (Aka E-Town to the locals). Whoop! She spent most of her childhood outdoors with her active brothers and father - you could say she knows how to hang with the boys. Every winter you'd find her on the slopes of Vail where her parents would ship her every weekend (her Dad was one of the first ski instructors at Vail)! She loves the mountains of Colorado with all her heart.
Fast forward to undergrad, when Katie received a double major in Speech Pathology and Audiology and then after college when Katie found a passion for working with children and particularly those with special needs.
Fast forward a bit more, when Katie became inspired for a bright new path after finding that Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine helped her with her life long struggles with digestion. She had finally found a medicine that listened and actively made her feel better without the use of pharmaceuticals ... what a concept! Katie took a big leap and went back to school. She graduated from the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2012 after completing an intense three-year accelerated program that included 2,850 hours of education with 1,000 hours of clinical experience.
Katie specializes in women's health, nutrition, fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, pediatrics, mental health, internal medicine and digestion.
RAPID FIRE Q&A WITH Katie:
What have been your career highlights (so far)?
Hands down every time I help a mom get pregnant and safely into her second trimester. How lucky am I to aid women with the tools to conceive? Nothing brings me such joy.
What’s your goal in life?
To be forever growing as a wife, mom and practitioner. To live a life that warms my heart; to help, to support and to love. I want to travel, experience belly laughs everyday, drink wine, backpack and stay true to who I am.
#1 Bucket List Trip?
China (oh and it will happen!)
Favorite Things In The World?
My boys (John, Weston, Charlie), my brothers, my sister besties ... oh and of course coffee and wine!
The struggle between being a mommy and running my own business.
