“Kate the BEST mentor EVER! I look forward to my sessions with her every single week. I am so much more confident; much more aware of negative self-talk and I’m working to change it; and I compare myself to others much less, which was a huge challenge for me. She’s helped me so much!”
— Jenna, mentee

“Kate is incredible! She is so relatable and fun!! I love that she gives you tools to improve. I use to doubt myself and my abilities, especially when I race. My nerves always got the best of me and I’d get so frustrated. Over the past few years I’ve gained so much confidence, motivation, and I love racing!”
— Kelly, mentee

Hey there! From personal experience and working with athletes all around the world, I understand the challenges we face in pursuit of our dreams. Throughout my career, I faced injury (I broke both of my feet jumping into the pool!) and illness, self-doubt and burnout, disappointment and frustration after years of no best times, and more. Probably the same challenges you’re facing. While I had amazing people supporting me on my journey, I frequently wished I had someone who could relate on a personal level to me; someone who had been there. That is what I hope to provide you. By working together, you’ll be equipped with the tools to manage your emotions and master your mindset to reach your dreams! I can’t wait to meet you!
— xoxo, Kate
