Katie began CrossFit in 2018 after wrapping up her final season of high school volleyball. She has been active her whole life, starting gymnastics as a toddler and later competing as a preteen. Katie played volleyball throughout middle and high school, eventually serving as the captain of her varsity team. Looking for a way to get stronger, she began taking CrossFit classes at a local box. After an initial month of hating it, she then fell in love with CrossFit and it has become an integral part of her daily life.
Katie joined CrossFit Saint Louis in 2019 during her freshman year at Washington University in St. Louis, and began coaching in February of 2021. She loves that CrossFit emphasizes well-roundedness over specializing in any one area, and the constantly varied nature of the sport keeps it engaging and exciting. Seeing progress over time in a variety of areas is addicting. Katie enjoys coaching because she gets to share her love of CrossFit with others, and she loves watching people achieve things they never thought they’d be capable of doing!
