Katie is a civil rights lawyer as her day job, but after discovering freediving several years ago, she’s devoted all her time outside work to the sport. She trains primarily in the fresh water cenotes in Yucatan, Mexico — splitting her time between there and NYC each month. She started competing a couple years ago and has been active in depth competitions ever since. Katie joined USA Freediving in 2021, and she was nominated to the USA Freediving Board as Secretary in 2024.
