A native Floridian, Kate has been swimming from the age of eight months old! Early exposure in Parent & Me lessons resulted in a lifetime love of the water. Kate swam competitively through high school, earning a Varsity letter two consecutive years, and at the University of Central Florida where she studied Business Management and Theatre. She is also an experienced Lifeguard and camp counselor. Outside the pool, she is a graduate student studying Theater in the city. As the oldest of four siblings, Kate has a natural instinct for working with young students, and especially instilling in them the same lifelong love of swimming.
