Kate Lofton, M.S.

Kate Lofton has been with Colorado Associates in Medical Physics (CAMP) since 2010.  She specializes in therapeutic medical physics and is certified through the American Board of Radiology.  Kate serves as our Vice President of Radiation Oncology Services.

 Kate completed her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky and her Masters of Science in Radiological Medical Physics at University of Kentucky in Lexington.  She completed her Clinical Residency at University of Louisville’s Brown Cancer Center.

Kate grew up in Indiana, but  is a Kentucky girl at heart and will always bleed blue.  In her free time you can find her teaching her children the C-A-T-S cheer for University of Kentucky Wildcats or watching Indianapolis Colts football!  She enjoys hiking and skiing with her family while exploring the mountains of Colorado.  She resides with her husband, Brad, and their three children in Colorado Springs.
