Katie actively trained and conditioned in MMA and Jiu Jitsu for 6 years participating in many tournaments/fights. For over 10 years she has coached Jiu Jitsu and MMA fighters as well as teaching self defense seminars for women. She then suffered a series of injuries that caused her to be pulled out of the sport. During 6 months of recovery Katie lost who she was, gained over 65lbs, and fell into a spiraling depression. With her experience with rehabilitation and working as a top trainer with cancer patients at RMCRI, Katie used her skills and education to rehabilitate herself and manage her chronic pain. Mind Body Connection has been a huge piece of her recovery and with the shift in her mindset, she has lost nearly 30lbs (continuing process) and is able to lift and train in boxing again. Katie is very dedicated to her clients making sure proper form and technique is top priority.
