Kate Morrison was born and raised in Northern Ontario in the small town of Parry Sound. With a background in competitive figure skating, Kate’s passion for movement and health began from an early age.
Kate is a graduate of the University of Toronto where she earned her Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy degree in 2012. Prior to this, she attended the University of Western Ontario, graduating with an honours degree in Kinesiology.
Over the past 10 years, Kate has worked clinically as a physiotherapist working with a variety of clinical populations. Kate is committed to lifelong learning and has pursued extensive continuing education courses over the years with a focus on manual therapy, women’s health, and a systematic whole-body approach to treating her clients. Kate believes strongly in a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and the importance of collaboration and communication with a variety of health care practitioners in order to optimize recovery and physical function.
Kate was first introduced to Kids Physio Group while living in Vancouver where her youngest daughter sustained an elbow injury and thus her journey began with Kids Physio Group. This experience opened her eyes to the many benefits of physiotherapy for children and what a privilege it was to be able to access this care for her own daughter. Kate is beyond thrilled to be able to bring this service to the Oakville community and to be able to support kids in achieving their individual goals while having the most possible FUN.
Outside of work you will find Kate enjoying a game of tennis, running through the trails, or enjoying a Friday night movie and pizza at home with her husband and two daughters.
