A native of San Diego, California, Katie is a single-course teacher and academic coach in the Johnson Academic Center and head varsity volleyball coach. She received her bachelor's degree in communication studies and English from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California, where she studied the effects of media and its impact on our society.

Katie started playing volleyball when she was 10 years old, propelling her into a college career and life-long involvement in the sport. She has been involved with the volleyball community in Winston-Salem since 2008, coaching at the J.O. level for Set Point Volleyball Club and also serving as varsity volleyball coach and program director at FCDS.
