Kaitlyn Valentine, P.T.A., is a physical therapist assistant at the Sports Medicine Center at Husky Stadium.
Valentine believes in fostering connections with patients that transcend beyond their diagnoses in order to better develop rapport and get to know who they are beyond their injured or surgical limb.
Valentine earned her P.T.A. from Naugatuck Valley Community College in Connecticut. She is a certified yoga instructor for adults and children and uses her training to help aid her patients in return to sports/recreational activities.
When Valentine is not working or playing with her cat, you can usually find her practicing yoga or sipping on a cup of tea. She really enjoys cooking and baking, which is typically reserved for weekends when there is time for disaster relief (kitchen clean-up). She recently took up casual cycling for exercise with her husband and is looking forward to exploring the new and much more “hilly” terrain here in the Pacific Northwest.
