Kathrine “Katie” Orlando

  • Occupational Therapist

Kathrine “Katie” Orlando is an occupational therapist with experience treating multiple health conditions, including orthopedic, neurological, and more. She joined the staff of the Barnegat office in September 2021.

Katie started off her college career as a music-education major and received a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Rutgers University in 2013. But to make a long story short, there were other plans at work for Katie, leading her to graduate from Stockton University in 2015 with a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.

Katie has had the opportunity to work in different settings with diverse patients, ranging from as young as 18 to up to 100 years old. Due to her extensive work in the inpatient setting, she gained a unique perspective as she worked with individuals who were often just beginning the healing process from different traumas. She is able to approach her patients’ needs with a level of understanding of where they have been and where occupational therapy can get them to. She has also seen her own family members benefit from occupational therapy services at various points in their lives, and understands the value it holds in the process of recovering from pain and dysfunction. Additionally, she has benefited from chiropractic and physical therapy care throughout the years and is excited to be working in such close collaboration with professionals in these fields.

Since beginning her career, Katie has received training in vestibular rehabilitation, neurodevelopmental treatment, and Total Motion Release. She is certified in kinesiology taping and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM), and is working toward her certification in the Hesch Method with a specialization in sacroiliac dysfunction. She is always interested in learning different treatment methods to continue improving outcomes for her patients and celebrate the gains they make in recovery. 

Katie is a native of Ocean County and is excited to provide treatment to individuals in her own backyard. Outside of work, she enjoys music, spending time with family and friends, and is an active member of her church.
