Katherine Shephard, PT, DPT is driven by a passion to help people through improving pelvic floor health, which she believes has been overlooked and under-treated for too long.
After acquiring her BA in Politics and International Relations from Scripps College, she tried out various careers - from coaching golf to selling granite monuments - but upon learning about physical therapy, she knew she had found her true calling.
Not wanting to lose any more time, she threw herself into her doctoral studies at the University of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota. While there, other parts of her life continued to grow and change: she welcomed two daughters over the course of finishing her studies.
Along with treating patients and running New Normal PT, she also mentors other pelvic health physical therapists and lectures at St. Catherine University in their doctor of physical therapy and physical therapist assistant programs.
With three littles at home, she can relate to parents and translate her care to work with their busy lives. She loves cooking, watching musicals, traveling, and sleeping through the night.
