Kati has been a board-certified radiation therapy physicist for over ten years and is currently employed at Prisma Health in Greenville, South Carolina. Her facility is equipped with a variety of state-of-the art technologies, where she has the privilege of also performing specialty therapies such as SRS/SBRT, TBI, HDR brachytherapy, and LDR eye plaque brachytherapy. Her desire for continued growth and finding new ways to contribute to the field of medical physics drew her back to continue her education.

As one of uur professional PhD students, Kati is researching a novel method for tracking intrafraction movement during radiation therapy treatments utilizing an electromagnetic sensor system. Her specific aim would be to use this device to overcome current challenges with Stereotactic Radiosurgery motion monitoring.

In her free time, Kati loves doing crafts and playing games with her two children, Everly and Nolan. She also treasures her much needed date nights with her husband.
