Dr. Kate S. Antoniotti

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. My parents are British, both hail from a small town outside of Manchester, England. Yes - I am a Manchester United fan!

I grew up playing soccer, usually against my brothers, but eventually against other girls. I loved the game, and I was fortunate enough to be selected as an All-American in high school, then accepted a scholarship to Miami University to continue playing for their varsity women's soccer team.

But wait, here comes the kicker, (pun intended). Towards the middle of my freshman year at Miami, I began to feel really ill. I was tired all the time, gaining weight, losing hair, having constant migraines, muscles would spasm randomly, and I couldn't focus in class. I saw all the "top docs" and was diagnosed with: hypo-thyroidism and chronic fatigue syndrome. Their solution: take these medications, for the rest of your life.... But they did not help. I still felt terrible, was tired all the time, my headaches never ceased, and because of everything, my grades were slipping and so was my soccer performance. I was sure that I was going to lose my scholarship and worse, feel this way for the rest of my life.

While home on summer break, my friend's mother suggested that I see her chiropractor. I had already seen so many doctors, all of whom put me on different medications, none of which seemed to be helping. I had nothing to lose. What I experienced that summer was truly a chiropractic miracle. I could go into serious detail about it, but I don't want to take up too much of your time. (However, if you are really interested in the details feel free to email me and ask. I would be happy to share with you the details and science behind my FULL RECOVERY).

After that experience I knew I wanted to be a chiropractor. I graduated from Miami University with a degree in Exercise Science and Kinesiology. I then moved to St. Louis, Missouri to attend Logan College of Chiropractic. While at Logan, I did additional studies in nutrition, pediatrics, women's health, and Applied Kinesiology. During my four years in St. Louis, I discovered my love for yoga, and eventually became a yoga teacher (200-RYT).

Intertwined within my college and chiropractic school experience is my love story, with Dr. Steve. We were married on June 30, 2012, after five years of dating. We always dreamed of practicing together, and we are thrilled to be able to live our dream here in Kalamazoo.

Dr. Steve and I both love the outdoors. We have a long list of destinations to visit now that we are Michigan residents! I love yoga, you can find me at Sangha, DownDog, or Intentional Yoga. My most recent discovery is the Kalamazoo Barre Studio, I love their classes and the people! Both Dr. Steve and I love working out at Cross Fit 269 and exploring the outdoors. You can find us at a local Kalamazoo coffee spot, and we also find time to enjoy Kalamazoo's amazing variety of breweries.
