Kate Canter, PT, DPT


Kate Canter graduated from Boyle County High School in 2013. However, her physical therapy journey began much earlier. In 2009 she had a devastating knee injury playing soccer. Despite the grueling recovery, she recognized the blessing in disguise and her newfound desire to pursue physical therapy as a career. 

After graduating high school, Kate then attended the University of Kentucky where she pursued Human Health Sciences. She was accepted a year early into UK’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program as a University Scholar. After completing her first year of physical therapy school, she also earned her Bachelors in Health Sciences (Summa Cum Laude). She gained experience volunteering at the Samaritan’s Touch Free Clinic, working in-home with a patient with a spinal cord injury, and completing four clinical rotations of which two were in outpatient. She graduated in 2019 and was inducted into the National Physical Therapy Student Honors Society. She then began her career at PTA. Kate plans to further her education in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Treatment to address spinal and peripheral pain, but she also enjoys treating a variety of patient problems.

Kate married her husband, Caleb Canter, in 2018. They chose to move to Hodgenville, Caleb’s hometown, to be closer to family. They are followers of Jesus and enjoy going to church and Bible studies. They also love spending time outdoors either hiking, camping, kayaking, or anything adventurous!
