At Cal, Katie was coached by Teri McKeever, the first female coach of the United States women’s Olympic swim team. Katie began her coaching career as a pre-teen at Orinda Park Pool where she eventually became responsible for the creation and management of the team’s curriculum and 200+ swimmers. Katie was also mentored by Jan Emler of Emler Swim Schools in Texas – one of the leading swim school programs in the country.
