Katie is a rising star in the sport of swimming, specializing in 200m freestyle & 100m butterfly events.  At the 2018 Pan Pacs, Katie’s 200m split was the second fastest behind Katie Ledecky.  At the 2019 Santa Clara Invitational, Katie swam an incredible 1:56:48 in the 200m, the fifth fastest time in the world this year, and second fastest time for an American woman (behind Ledecky).  Katie also swam the 100m fly in 57.77, the 2nd fastest of her career, and had a strong 100m free (54:15). 

The 2019 World Aquatics Championships take place next month in Gwangju, South Korea, where Katie plans to swim the indiv. 100m fly, medley relay and 4x200m free relay.  Katie is well-positioned for a break out performance at Worlds and she is focused on qualifying for the Tokyo Olympic Team in multiple individual events. 

Katie just graduated from Cal Berkeley, where she currently trains under Teri McKeever.  Articulate, spirited and professional, Katie is excited to begin her career competing post college and has her sights set on some big goals ahead!
