She is also the Vice Chair of the IPPS Research Committee, a member of the Governance Committee for the APTA’s Section of Women’s Health, and a member of the Judicial/Reference Committee for the NYPTA. Furthermore, she regularly participates in advocacy efforts at the local, state, and national level in an effort to improve patient care and access, as well as to help strengthen the physical therapy profession overall. Additionally, she has an interest in contributing to research in pelvic health, to promote community awareness, and help raise the bar for quality of care. Katie is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA), and the International Pelvic Pain Society (IPPS).
