She was recruited for DI golf at North Dakota State, only to switch after 5 months to finish a successful career in shot put and hammer on the NDSU track & field team. As a former college athlete, Katie possesses a strong knowledge of physical fitness, its application to golf, and the importance of technique in all sports.

Her dedication to growing the game (especially for women and juniors) resulted in the Dakota Chapter 2016 Assistant of the Year award.
