    Stephanie Colasanti, PT, DPT

    Physical Therapist

    Stephanie fell in love with the Big Island when she did one of her physical therapy internships at the Life Care Center of Kona and knew it would be a great place to practice physical therapy.

    Stephanie is originally from Michigan, but moved to the north east coast of Florida when she was 8. She developed a passion for surfing and the ocean from growing up in Florida and spent a few years in between summers coming home from college as an Ocean rescue lifeguard. She also participated in junior lifeguards, teaching kids to surf, taking them ocean kayaking and teaching them the ropes of being a lifeguard. Growing up, she was also a cross country runner and avid tennis player. She has a passion for nature, outdoors and adventure, and after graduating undergrad she did a 1200 mile bike tour from Eugene OR to Los Angeles CA.

    Her interests in PT include orthopedics and neurologic population. She has already taken all of the manual therapy courses (continuing ed) offered by the University of St. Augustine, and plans to get Manual Therapy Certified after gaining more experience with orthopedic patients. She loves treating a variety of patients ranging from the orthopedic to the neurological patient population and to provide them with the tools they need to move and feel better to improve their overall quality of life. Her future goals are to become MTC certified, SFMA certified, and potentially certified in yoga for health professionals.

    Kate LaPak, PT, DPT

    Physical Therapist

    Kate is originally from the northeast, specifically New York and Philadelphia, but has spent her most recent years living in St. Louis, Missouri. She, like Stephanie, never wanted to leave the Big Island during a physical therapy internship at the Life Care Center of Kona. She was more than happy to leave the Midwest and return to the Big Island to practice physical therapy.

    Kate grew up in a large family with four brothers and has always been active. She grew up playing soccer, basketball, and flag football with her focus being primarily on soccer. She played varsity soccer all four years of high school and continued to play on a club team at Hofstra University, where she received her B.S. in Biology in 2015.

    She then returned to St. Louis to pursue her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at Washington University. Upon graduation in 2018, Kate moved to the Big Island. She is glad to call Kona her home and hopes to continue educating and treating the community to help patients move better and feel better.
