Short track coach
Coach Katherine began speed skating at the age of 5. It was a family endeavor and her career was a journey that brought her family closer together.
Coach Katherine took a year off due to injury from January 2012 to February 2013. Even after a year off the ice her injuries had not subsided so she began her new journey into coaching. She has been Head Coach of the ASE Speed Skating Team at the Pettit National Ice Center in Milwaukee for one year. She loves coaching because it’s the perfect environment to keep learning, help others, and instill the values of Sport and the Olympic Movement in athletes all over the country.
