Kristina Koenig, PT, DPT was born and raised in Tucson, AZ. It was there that she learned to love everything outdoors and participated in several sports. She graduated with her Bachelor’s of Arts in Communications and Human Health in 2008. Knowing she wanted to help people, but unsure how, she spent 4 years in Aspen, CO and Vail, CO ski bumming, raft guiding, and playing hard in the mountains while deciding. She became interested in sports medicine after tearing her ACL while skiing in Snowmass, CO and decided to pursue her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree. She moved to Boulder, completed all of her required courses at University of Colorado, and trekked to Manchester, NH to complete her DPT. She always knew Boulder and the mountains of Colorado would be home, and that is where she returned for her first clinical experience in outpatient pediatrics and hippotherapy.

Her outpatient orthopedic clinical experience in Crested Butte, CO was a major influence on her passion to help athletes. It is during this clinical she was able to evaluate and treat athletes of all calibers with a variety of injuries and functional limitations. She loves helping people achieve their optimal level of performance, particularly with return to sport and daily activities.
Kristina currently lives in Boulder, where she enjoys all things outdoors including but not limited to skiing, hiking, running, swimming, riding her bicycles, motorcycle, and horses. You can often see her out on the trails with her two dogs, Nyla and Anya (a therapy dog that frequently assists in patient care at BoulderCentre). A healthy dose of sarcasm and humor are two additional services she provides.
