Katie was introduced to CrossFit in 2014 by a family friend and was immediately hooked on the competitive but supportive nature of the community. She continued to do CrossFit on breaks from college until she received her Level 1 Certificate in September 2016 when she began coaching and doing CrossFit more consistently. Katie has her Masters in Sport and Recreation Leadership and is a lifeguard for Wrightsville Beach Ocean Rescue.
Katie believes that everyone can find something they love to do that will also keep them healthy. She is very passionate about helping people reach their goals, become a healthier version of themselves, and enjoy themselves all at the same time. She enjoys that CrossFit is universal and can be scaled to fit each individual no matter where they are in their life or fitness journey.
