Katie

Hi, my name is Katie. I am 12 years old and in 6th grade. I was diagnosed with scoliosis with a 52 degree curve when I was 10. I enjoy art and crafts, playing guitar, playing with my three cats, and hanging out with my friends.

I wear a Boston brace 20 hours a day and do Schroth physical therapy 20-30 minutes most days. My friends all know about my scoliosis and brace and it’s no big deal. My scoliosis makes me feel unique which I think is a good thing!


I participated in my CG group for 2 years before the opportunity to lead came up. I am really looking forward to helping other girls feel good about themselves and help them see they are unique in a good way!
