For members of the HealthIO program who may need extra encouragement, Katie is there to help. As a certified health coach, Katie’s role is to walk alongside people in their health journey. She provides guidance, support, and education. Katie’s philosophy of coaching is rooted in cura personalis, or “care for the whole person.” She joined Milliman HealthIO thanks in part to the strong sense of common purpose we have in moving healthcare towards prevention and overall wellness.
Katie began her career at the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee as a senior wellness coordinator. She then took on successive roles as a fitness trainer, most recently with BTE, a provider of physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment.
Katie is a graduate of Marquette University, where she earned her BS in Exercise Physiology. She has received personal trainer certification from the American Council on Exercise (ACE Fitness). Additionally, she holds certifications in First Aid and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Automatic External Defibrillation from the American Heart Association. Katie has also earned an Occupational Safety and Health Administration certification.
Outside of the office, Katie loves to measure, mix, and get messy in the kitchen. A talented home baker, she can be found crafting dozens of exquisite wedding cakes each year.
