Meet Dr. Kate Higgins, Chiropractor

July 27, 2021 | Meet the Team

I am the newest Chiropractor at the CURAVITA Glebe location. I joined the CURAVITA team in March of 2021 after graduating in February from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. During my time at Palmer, I was on the executive team for clubs such as the Student Canadian Club, the women’s rugby team, and the women’s hockey team. 

At CURAVITA I love the team atmosphere, the people I work with, and the patients we attract. Everyone is very active and takes an enthusiastic role in their health!

I like to play a variety of sports and be active in many ways. I play ball hockey with the OSSC, I like to run, hike the local trails and go to the gym. At Palmer, I played on the women’s rugby team and ice hockey team. 

I volunteer with the Ottawa Food Bank at the Community Farm that is south of Stittsville. This farm allows the food bank to provide valuable produce to its many local distributors. Volunteers at the farm perform various tasks depending on the season; so far I have helped with potato and leek planting, weeding crops, harvesting garlic, and preparing for cover crops to be planted. 

While living in the United States, I had the opportunity to travel and experience many of the Midwestern states. This summer my travels include going to Yorkton, Saskatchewan for my older sister’s wedding. 

My favourite things in Ottawa are hiking, checking out the local breweries, and spending time with my niece and nephew!
