After completing her doctorate at The University of Alabama at Birmingham, she honed her career skills at Texas Children's Hospital, contributing to innovative therapy program development in the Plagiocephaly Clinic, Vascular Anomalies Center, and Lung Transplant Program. Catherine is a certified lymphedema therapist (CLT-LANA) and has advanced skills in pediatric myofascial release with a particular niche in "ankyloglossia bodywork." She has special interests in holistic, multidisciplinary therapeutic treatment for babies and young children with neurodevelopment and postural concerns. Dr Katie is also a wife and mom to her young children, a daughter and a son.

"As a pediatric physical therapist, I believe in meeting a baby and their family where they are on their journey. I aim to support comprehensive needs of baby and family along the way. This means becoming a part of the baby’s world and prioritizing what is important to the baby and family to achieve. Meeting physical and emotional needs of a baby and their family is critical to achieve optimal outcomes through physical therapy.

 

As a parent, I believe that my worlds as a pediatric physical therapist and mom complement one another in a special way.  Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. I look forward to learning more about you and your precious baby!"

She also began her career at Texas Children’s Hospital where she gained opportunities for mentorship and continued education classes that honed her skill set for working with young children, particularly with diagnosis of torticollis and developmental delay. She is proficient in “typical” development which allows for a keen clinical eye for postural alignment and gross motor skills, especially in the first year of life.

Dr Kelsey joined PhysioBaby in August of 2020, with the intent to provide concierge infant care to those at risk for developing maladaptive movement patterns stemming from postural or neurologic impairment. Kelsey has a newfound passion working with babies needing ankyloglossia body work associated with a diagnosis of lip and/or tongue ties, assisting in the pre and post rehab to prevent long standing myofascial restriction and tightness that can greatly affect normal development, feeding efficiency and postural control, among other things. Kelsey is also a wife and mom to her daughter.

Chelsea Kerr

Chelsea Kerr joined the PhysioBaby Physical Therapy & Wellness Team as our Patient Care Coordinator in the Fall of 2020. Chelsea holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology with a focus in Human Movement Science from Louisiana State University. 

 

Chelsea has gained valuable industry experience through her time spent as a Physical Therapy (PT) Tech in both the Texas Children’s and Memorial Herman Hospital systems. After briefly taking time away, Chelsea found herself thriving as an Executive Administrative Assistant where her focus moved to a coordination and quality of service role. Her skills and experience, not only in the PT industry, but also in coordinating quality customer care make her an unmatched asset too all. When she is a not helping the PhysioBaby team, Chelsea is likely spending time at home with her husband and their two beautiful girls.

 

“Often, the Patient Care Coordinator is the first and occasionally the last point of contact the family has in the care process. With this in mind, I believe that the level of care provided by the DPT must be replicated in all aspects of the process from introduction to discharge.”
