2014 Olympic Hopeful

After receiving an email from 2010 Olympic Bobsled bronze medalist Elana Meyers at the end of 2010, Katie decided to give the sport a try. As a former volleyball players for Western Michigan University, she holds the record for the most matches and sets played and most career kill/dig double doubles. Katie had a 2008 NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearance during her junior season.

After claiming the 2011 U.S. National Push Champion title in her rookie season, Katie became an immediate favorite for Team USA.
