After spending most of her life as a competitive swimmer, Katie started CrossFit in 2011 as a way to harness her competitive energy and stay in shape for all the outdoor activities she loves.
She qualified for Regionals (back when that was a thing) as an individual in 2013, 2014, and 2015, and competed on teams at Regionals in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. She’s passionate about the competitive side of the sport and briefly competed in Olympic weightlifting, but these days, enjoys fitness for fun, especially if there’s a barbell involved.
Katie, her husband, and their cat relocated to Bellingham from Philadelphia in June 2022. When she’s not at the gym, you’ll find her anywhere her hiking boots can take her in the North Cascades.
