Dr. Katherine Burtis
doctor of chiropractic - co-founder
Dr. Katherine Burtis also known as Dr. Kat is originally from Long Island, NY. She is a second-generation chiropractor, and as a child she grew up with chiropractic and the understanding of the power of the nervous system.
She graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science. Upon graduation, Dr. Kat worked for a large pharmaceutical company. It was through this direct experience when she became inspired to trace back to her roots and help individuals heal naturally. She completed her doctorate in chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Kat is extremely passionate about improving the health of the DeLand community to allow them to thrive with specific chiropractic care.
Outside of the office, you can find her spending time with her friends and family, spending date nights with her hubby Pete in downtown DeLand, hiking on trails in central Florida, riding horses in DeLeon Springs, and enjoying time with her 2 cats - Ron and Charles.
Pete Burtis is originally from Annapolis, MD. For the past 4 years, him and Dr. Kat have lived in DeLand Florida. He fell in love with the small town charm.
Pete first experienced chiropractic five years ago. He had encountered multiple car accidents and 2 herniated discs in his neck. He was left with little hope until he found TRT chiropractic care. Pete no longer struggles with neck discomfort and headaches, and loves to see how chiropractic has improved his golf game.
Outside of the office, you can find him spending time on the golf course, fishing, hiking, dining at his favorite restaurant (Bake Chop) with Dr. Kat, and spending time with their 2 cats - Ron and Charles.
