Katie has always had passion for sport. It wasn’t long after she picked up her first paddle at the age of 10 that she realised she would be spending most of her childhood at the Mississauga Canoe Club. A multi sport athlete growing up, when she turned 16 she focused all her efforts on sprint canoe hoping to be one of the first women to ever canoe on the Olympic stage. Picking up a handful of world titles in the last few years, Katie has her sights set on the podium in Tokyo 2020, which all starts with her qualifying in C2 500m at the world championships at the end of August.
