Katie first became interested in Pilates when training as a classical dancer in London. After sustaining an injury that prevented her from dancing Katie studied physiotherapy and graduated from University of East London in 2003 with a B.Sc. (Hons) in Physiotherapy. She is a registered member of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists.

She gained valuable experience working in the NHS in a large teaching hospital in London. She worked in a variety of settings including Respiratory Care/ICU, Orthopaedics, GP and Consultant Musculoskeletal Outpatients, Chronic Pain Management, Palliative Care, and Gerontology/Neurology. During this time she qualified as a Pilates instructor and taught Pilates classes privately as well as integrating it in her management of musculoskeletal patients.

After returning to Cork, Katie worked in the private sector in a specialist Sports Injury Clinic. Katie has a keen interest in sports, exercise and movement. In addition to her background in dance, she has competed in both Olympic and Sprint distance Triathlons and she continues to run, swim and cycle.
