Kate earned an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts at Dutchess Community College in 2002. She then studied for a year at Manhattan College in Riverdale, NY, but found her calling through participating in an internship at US Athletic Training Center in Manhattan in 2003. She worked as a Physical Therapy Aide in Hyde Park, NY, and in 2005 enrolled in the Physical Therapy Assistant Program at Orange County Community College. Upon completing her degree in Applied Science in 2007, she passed the NYS board exam and began work as a Licensed PT Assistant. Her growing interest in Manual Therapy and Massage Therapy led her to The Hudson Valley School Of Massage Therapy, where she completed the Massage Therapy program in December 2009; she passed the NYS board exam in March of 2010. Massage Therapy opened up a new opportunity as a business owner, and she became a partner with Edward Schaeffer at Strength For Life LLC, in Poughkeepsie, NY. In 2011 Kate discovered John F. Barnes' Myofascial Release and began to turn over her practice to MFR. She has been exclusively practicing MFR since 2012 and will continue to study through the seminars that John F. Barnes offers.
