Robin has been a licensed physical therapist since 1997 obtaining her Master's Degree in Physical Therapy, board certification in Sports Physical Therapy in 2015, and her Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2020. Inspire Physical Therapy is her dream and passion....to heal kids and athletes, as well as, help educate parents, coaches, and kids on how to avoid and prevent injuries. 

 

Robin moved to the Beaverton area in the beginning of 2015. Prior to her move, she worked at Children's Hospital and Research Center, Oakland (now named UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital). She was hired in 2002 to work in the Orthopedic Clinic alongside Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeons helping with post-op care, initial care plans, treatments for home, and referrals to local physical therapy practices. In 2004, Robin was one of the founding staff members of the Sports Medicine Center for Young Athletes. As their Senior Physical Therapist for over 11 years, she treated various diagnoses, designed and implemented several clinic and community programs, and was a consultant to many local schools and sports clubs in the area.

Her background as an athlete began as a child competing in figure skating from ages 5-14. Throughout high school and college she worked at several gyms as a lifeguard, aerobic instructor, and swim instructor.  During her junior year in college she joined the Chico State Women's Lacrosse team. In 2016, Robin was accepted to do a rotation at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Her patients were Olympic hopefuls in gymnastics, cycling, ice skating, skeleton, and even the heptathlon. She also had to privilege of working with Para-Olympic hopefuls in swimming and Judo. Since then, in 2017 and 2018 she returned to Colorado springs working with team USA swimming, wrestling, gymnastics, and cycling. 

  

In September of 2016, Inspire Physical Therapy was selected as an official collaborating organization with "STOP Sport Injuries", a national effort by the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine (AOSSM). This has opened many doors to research, and educational opportunities for athletes, coaches and parents as well as support for lectures in our community. 

Currently she is a board member for the the Pacific Northwest chapter of the Juvenile Diabetes and Research Foundation as well as a community member on the Washington County Public Health Council.

Physical Therapist
Infant/Toddler Specialist
Certified Doula
Certified Infant Massage Teacher
Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner

From a young age, Katie knew she wanted her profession to involve working with kids. She received her Masters of Science in PT from Boston University in 1999, and has since worked with children of all ages in a variety of settings, from babies in Neonatal Intensive Care Units to teens in outpatient clinics. She has also traveled to the Philippines, India, and Mexico to work with underserved children.

 

Over the past decade, she has become a Certified Labor Doula, Certified Infant Massage Teacher, and a Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner, and her physical therapy practice has gradually narrowed to focus on young children. 

Katie now works with infants, toddlers, and preschool aged children, helping kids with developmental delay as well as neurological and orthopedic conditions. She focuses on therapy that is developmentally appropriate and fun for the child, and helps caregivers support their children’s development. In addition to providing physical therapy, Katie also facilitates developmental playgroups and teaches infant massage to parents and other caregivers. She believes strongly in helping all kids reach their full potential in order to live healthy, fun-­filled lives. 

When Katie is not treating patients and working with families, she can be found exploring new places with her husband and kids, trying to grow fruits and veggies in her backyard, exploring Portland’s waterways on her stand up paddleboard, or curled up with a good book.
