Jill Roberts  PT, MS
Physical Therapist, Polestar Pilates Certified Instructor

Jill received her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University in 1998 and then completed her Masters in Physical Therapy in 2001 from Texas State University.


Jill has always been passionate about health and fitness which lead her to a career as a Physical Therapist. As a Physical Therapist, she has been able to help patients thrive through movement and exercise, returning to what they love and regaining their quality of life.


Jill has been practicing Physical Therapy for nearly 20 years. Over those years, she has gained a wealth of experience in many areas including acute neurological rehabilitation, pediatrics, outpatient sports injury rehabilitation and most recently, orthopedics and post-surgical rehabilitation.


Desiring the ability to further address whole person wellness and move towards surgery prevention, Jill was introduced to the practice of Pilates by a friend and mentor. She became a student with Polestar Pilates where she completed her training. Polestar Pilates is a rehabilitative training program that applies current research and practice in orthopedics, sports medicine and movement science to the principles originated by Joseph Pilates.


Even with years of experience as a Physical Therapist and knowledge of movement and body mechanics, Jill continues to be amazed at her own progress with body awareness through Pilates. Pilates has been the perfect complement to her career as a Physical Therapist and has allowed her increased ability to visualize faulty movement patterns and provide safe and effective strategies for improvement.

Dr. Katharine J. Grubert  PT, DPT,  Physical Therapist, APPI Certified Pilates Instructor
Available for online Zoom sessions only.

Katie received her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology/Exercise Science from Indiana University in 2005 then completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2008 from Emory University, School of Medicine, in Atlanta Georgia.  Katie would tell you that she was “made to be a physical therapist; from the biomechanical exercise science thinking to the personal relationships you develop with your patients and clients,” this was the career path for her. 


Over the 10 years of practice Katie has gained a wide breadth of experience some starting while she was in graduate school having two long term clinical affiliations at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL and Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation, specifically the Brain Injury team.  Katie’s career began with a focus on the neurological population as well as amputees but over the years she gained experience with Orthopedic patient’s ranging from immediately post-operatively to full rehabilitation in an outpatient setting. 


Katie’s first taste of Pilates was during physical therapy school as an elective she chose to take for an alternative treatment approach.  Some of the main concepts of Pilates, optimal posture and efficient movement patterns are also the essence to how Katie practices Physical Therapy.  Her Rehabilitative Pilates training received through APPI, Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute, has transformed how Katie addresses all forms of exercise.  As a mother of three young children, Katie has personally seen the benefits of Rehabilitative Pilates aiding to reduce her abdominal separation from pregnancy and restore strength, flexibility and improved posture.  Katie desires to utilize Rehabilitative Pilates to not only rehabilitate those needing formal rehabilitation but also to help others improve their overall posture, flexibility and efficient movement with recreational and daily life activities.
