A Thousand Oaks native, Katie has been dancing since the age of 3. She danced competitively until the age of 18 when she moved to San Diego to attend San Diego State University. While pursuing her degree in Kinesiology she was a member of the SDSU Dance Team, and a captain her senior year. After graduating with honors in the major Katie moved back to the conejo valley and began coaching the national championship winning dance team at Westlake High School while attending California Lutheran University to earn her California teaching credential. She has since taught and coached at several schools including Burbank High School and Thousand Oaks High School. After the birth of her three children, Katie changed directions and began working at her family's dance and aerial arts studio where she developed a passion for all things aerial. Katie is very happy to bring all of the knowledge and love she learned for the aerial arts at her family's studio to the Bobbie's family.
