Katie is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated from Connecticut College with a double major in dance & self-designed major environmental politics. Since moving to NYC, she has danced with BE Dance Collective, Tough Cookie Dance, Kitchen Sink Collective, Rewind Dance, and The Lovelies, performing at various locations in and around New York City. She has presented her own work at Triskelion, White Wave CoolNY Dance Festival, Movement Research, and Dixon Place. 
After experiencing dance related injuries, Katie found Pilates as a way to rehabilitate and deepen her knowledge and awareness of the body and continues to find this work a continual learning process.  She is a certified Pilates Instructor on mat and equipment through the Kane School of Core Integration, and has attended continuing education courses on topics including pre and post natal work, senior fall prevention, the sacrum and SI joint issues, among other teacher clinics and workshops. 
Katie has taught at various studios in the New York area, currently teaching at Pilates Garage and Progressive Pilates in Williamsburg as well as Dynamic Body Pilates at Studio 26 in Manhattan. She is really excited to join the Swan team!
