Kristine Burns joined our team in 2001. She is dual credentialed as both a certified athletic trainer (ATC) and a physical therapist assistant (PTA). Prior to joining our practice, Kristine had experience as an ATC in the collegiate setting as both an assistant and head ATC. Her primary responsibility with us, upon hire, was to serve as the Head ATC at Grimsley Senior High School. Her role has since changed. In 2006, Kristine elected to care for patients predominantly within the Therapy Services department. She treats a variety of patients from pediatric to geriatric stages of life. “I enjoy working with a variety of people every day – no two days are the same. I get a certain sense of fulfillment when a patient completes their post-surgical rehabilitation and returns to express their gratitude, especially when a patient announces, “I was able to complete the triathlon I was training for!” or “I got a scholarship for track and field!” says, Kristine.
