Experience and Interests
Kathy is a member of our Endurance Medicine, hip outcome and ACL injury prevention teams. Her clinical interests include endurance athletes at both the recreational and elite levels, injury prevention and sports performance. She is actively involved in two endurance medicine research projects: studying normative values to improve video swim stroke analysis and determining the best treatment techniques to most efficiently return runners to sport.
Kathy provides medical support at local running and multisport events, including the Ross TriFit Challenge and Pelotonia. She also presents educational lectures about injury prevention, training and rehabilitation of the endurance athlete and the patient with hip labral repair post-operative rehab guidelines. Additionally, she specializes in performing video gait analyses, bike fittings and video swim stroke analyses.
Outside of her clinic time at our Ohio State campus location, she is an active athlete, completing three Boston Marathons and five Ironman triathlon events; an avid cyclist, completing tours across Ohio, Colorado and California and also enjoys skiing, swimming and climbing.
