Katie grew up in South America where her love for dance flourished. She took a range of dance classes growing up in Paraguay and Costa Rica. She went to collage at Central State and currently works for Beavercreek City Schools as an IT Support Specialist. As an adult, she was looking for a way to continue dancing, therefore she became a Zumba and SWERK instructor certified in 2016 and has been sharing her love for group fitness and dance ever since then. Her favorite part of group fitness has been getting to know women who share her same love for dance and are looking for a safe, positive place to work out.
