Kate is an ABC-certified prosthetist for Hanger Clinic in Waukesha, Wisconsin with more than ten years of experience. She specializes in lower extremity prosthetics, and works closely with the Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin to ensure their patients have successful prosthetic outcomes. For Kate, there is no greater feeling than knowing that she directly contributed to empowering an orthotic or prosthetic patient.
Kate also provides cranial remolding orthoses to treat infant cranial asymmetry. She finds it so enjoyable to see her cranial remolding orthoses patients grow and develop into little humans, as well as see their fun personalities start to shine. She loves to see the excitement in the parent’s eyes when directed growth and correction occurs during the course of treatment.
Outside of work, Kate enjoys going on long runs and soaking up the morning sun with a hot cup of coffee.
