Katie Gottlieb OT

In her role as Occupational Therapist & Work Injury Program Director, Katie is responsible for developing and growing Rebound’s workers’ compensation and return to work and re-injury prevention services such as pre-employment testing, PCEs, FCEs, work hardening and conditioning, and/or ergonomic assessments.

Katie grew up in Marin County just north of San Francisco, CA. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree at Santa Clara University and moved to Aspen, CO soon after where she worked with Challenge Aspen and their Adaptive Sports Program. Working with disabled athletes at Challenge Aspen is what inspired Katie to attend OT School.

After graduating from San Jose State University with a Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy, Katie relocated to Seattle. While working in the Seattle area, Katie directed and developed Work Rehabilitation programs, including work hardening and conditioning programs, before relocating to Bend.

Also experienced working in hand therapy, Katie has worked with upper limb amputation patients, training and teaching them to use the myoelectric hand for ADLs and basic daily tasks.

In her free time, Katie enjoys snow skiing, all water sports, hiking, biking and entertaining family and friends.
