Here's something interesting... Katie is not the only top-level athlete in her family; her cousin, Erin Blanchard, competed in the event of Women's Individual Trampoline [gymnastics] at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
Quotable quote: "Knowing your role on a team plays a vital part in your career, happiness, and experience. You don’t have to be an All-American to leave a legacy and make a difference. You just have to do what you are responsible for doing with all the enthusiasm and passion you have to offer."
What's she up to now? After graduating, Katie took multiple jobs in the field of sports performance and exercise science over time before going back to school to get a degree in the latter field. She currently holds a graduate assistant’s position in the strength and conditioning department at Liberty University, where she works with the softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and cheerleading teams, as well as occasionally the women’s lacrosse, soccer, and field hockey teams.
