KATIE DOUGLAS, R. Kin
Katie has always had a fascination for human movement. From the time she was two, she didn’t stop moving! Growing up in Owen Sound, ON, she was an avid highland dancer, involved in school athletics and a fan of nature and outdoor adventure. She also had a passion for helping others. During her final years of secondary school, she was introduced to the field of kinesiology and knew that this was a career that she wanted for herself.
Kinesiology is the science of human movement, applying the latest evidence based research to improve function, health and wellness. Feel better. Live better. Move better. Katie can help improve your health, mobility and well-being. From treating common injuries to helping prevent some of the most serious medical conditions, exercise prescription is just what the doctor ordered!
