Membership Committee Report

Dr. Katherine Cano, Doctor of Physical Therapy and president of the BNI Gold Coast Chapter, spends a great deal of time in her office—the office she was able to find thanks to just three BNI-related emails.

“I was looking for an office. When I asked for help, I got three emails - one from a current member, one from a prior member, and one from the landlord that was looking for someone to rent space!  In just one week I had a new location. I was only a member of the chapter for about three months at the time,” she said. “That really speaks to the power of BNI.”

When she’s not in her office, Katherine spends a lot of time helping Civil Service employees in her hometown of North Bergen, as well as in Hoboken. Along with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), she has placed great advocacy in "Protecting the Protectors". Tactical athletes—firefighters, law enforcement officers, and military personnel—make it their mission to keep Americans safe. Across the country, Physical Therapist, including Katherine are committed to returning the favor.

Such that, she's been working with the North Bergen Police Department on its “Biggest Loser” challenge, by providing fitness and nutrition screens. Each member she’s working with paid a $50 registration to join the challenge; the registration fees are being donated to the Special Olympics.

Katherine also spent a recent weekend as part of the medical staff at the Battle of North Bergen, a softball tournament between the North Bergen Police Department, North Bergen Board of Education, North Hudson Fire Department, Hudson County Sheriff’s Department and North Bergen’s Department of Public Works. All proceeds from that event were donated to the Special Olympics NJ Fund.

Her next volunteer endeavor will be to participate in the first Hoboken Wellness Crawl on June 4. She will be educating participants about Physical Therapy and demonstrating several modalities she incorporates in treatment, including cupping, dry needle therapy, and manual therapy.
