Katie Patteron, MOT OTR/L

Occupational Therapist

Meet Katie, a dedicated Occupational Therapist for the McKibben & Monte team in Tampa, Florida. With a focus on feeding therapy, sensory integration, social-emotional skills, fine motor skills, and more, Katie brings a wealth of expertise and enthusiasm to our team.

What Katie loves most about her role is guiding her clients towards independence through the power of play, while also forging strong therapeutic bonds with both children and their families. Her journey into occupational therapy was driven by a lifelong passion for caring for others, particularly in pediatric settings, where she witnessed remarkable growth in the children she worked with. Determined to make a lasting impact, Katie committed herself to assisting children and families in need, dedicating her life to this noble cause.

Katie’s approach is rooted in empathy and understanding. She believes in establishing a strong rapport with each child, allowing them to take the lead and build trust before introducing new activities. This foundation of trust paves the way for success, especially when guiding children through activities outside their comfort zone.

Away from her therapeutic endeavors, Katie finds joy in the pages of Dr. Seuss books, cherishing their whimsical tales. As a child, she was captivated by the magical world of the Harry Potter series, sparking her imagination and love for storytelling.

In her leisure time, Katie embraces the tranquility of yoga, unleashes her creativity through art, revels in the playful antics of her three beloved cats, and dances to the rhythm of life. With her compassionate spirit and diverse interests, Katie enriches the lives of those around her, both inside and outside the therapy room.
