Kate was a competitive swimmer when she was younger. She started Ballet dance as a cross-training mechanism for swimming and loved it. Eventually, she left competitive swimming for competitive dance. She danced all throughout middle and high school. During her later years in high school, she was introduced to Pilates as a form of cross-training for dance. After a severe ankle injury, she used Pilates to build strength and rehabilitate her body. This is when she fell in love with Pilates and realized what a vital form of movement it is for people, whether they're struggling with physical limitations or not. She went on to major in Dance Performance at Florida State University where she continued her Pilates training in tandem with her study of anatomy, kinesiology, and dance. She graduated in 2015 with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in dance. Since then, she worked under the guidance of William Michael Cooper as a choreographer, dancer, and teacher with the Contemporary South Dance Company in Alabama. There, she started her Club Pilates Teacher Training Certification Program of which she graduated November 2018. She is now General Manager of Club Pilates Bethesda and a certified Pilates instructor.
