Katee Housner , DPT
Katee graduated from Saint Louis University with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2019. She grew up in the Chicago suburbs and moved to the city after completion of her degree. Katee is a former Division I collegiate swimmer, competing at an elite level since the age of 5 in addition to running track and cross country competitively until college. She faced numerous injuries providing her insight into the change a physical therapist can make in a person’s quality of life and ultimately developing a passion to become a physical therapist.
Katee’s ultimate goal is helping patients reach their full potential with each patient’s individual goals in mind. She is focused on providing education that extends beyond treatment in the clinic to ensure patients are engaged and active in their care. She has experience treating a variety of patient conditions and ages, including orthopedic, neurological, and pediatric experience. Katee also has international experience having worked as a student physical therapist at a rehabilitation hospital in Italy.
Outside of the clinic Katee enjoys running and biking along the lakefront, exploring local Chicago restaurants, and traveling (when it is safe to do so). She has 10+ years of experience volunteering with local adaptive sports charities and is a member of the Young Professionals Board for Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association.
