Kate Weaver, PT, DPT
Kate completed her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Temple University in Philadelphia following a long career as a competitive swimmer and collegiate coach. Kate’s interest in sports psychology, motivation, and injury prevention led her to a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Vermont with concurrent minors in nutrition and mathematics.
While at Vermont, Kate was a four-year Division I swimmer who was recognized as an America East Conference champion, rookie of the year, UVM record holder, and ECAC champion. Following graduation she joined the team at Marywood University where she coached both Men’s and Women’s Swimming, acted as Aquatics Director, and was recognized as co-coach of the year in the Landmark Conference, leading the team to their most successful season. Kate’s personal success in athletics, love of coaching, and desire to assist athletes in achieving their goals ultimately led her to Physical Therapy.
Her ambitions as a physical therapist are to bring her joy and love of movement to all her clients. Utilizing a holistic approach to injury recovery and prevention, she promotes a positive environment that focuses on mind-body health, nutrition, and body mechanics to guide the individual through their recovery process. Kate’s professional interest includes injury prevention and rehabilitation of endurance athletes and clients with active lifestyles.
Kate has a passion for nature and the outdoors and can be found in the mountains year-round. She loves to snowboard, hike, backcountry camp, and sail. She continues to engage in competition and participates in marathons, spartan races, and triathlons, most recently qualifying for the Ironman 70.3 Worlds in 2020. When not outside, she can be found whipping up a delicious baked good in the kitchen which she often shares with co-workers and friends. As a South Burlington native, she is excited to be back in Vermont and spend more time with her family.
