Katie brings the energy and charisma you associate with an elite athlete - coupled with the friendly charm and straight talk of a good friend. She spent fifteen years relentlessly driving her own performance in competitive swimming from local star to national darling to international champion in her sport. What does it take? Katie will tell you.
How can you apply what she learned to the challenges you face in your life? Katie will tell you. She is an open book and her sincere mission in each appearance is to bring her 'A' game to the session, prepared to talk with candor about the good, the bad and the sometimes unbearable 'middle' place - in between accomplishments.
Katie is a 8x World Champion, 2x Olympian - in Athens Greece and Beijing China - and earned a silver and two bronze Olympic medals in swimming. Hailed as the 'female Michael Phelps,' she withstood tremendous pressure and emerged from years of effort with valuable lessons learned on what it takes to succeed and power through bitter disappointment.
