Katie was born and raised in the South Hams, Devon. In 2015 she started at Loughborough University studying Sport and Exercise Science where she graduated with an upper second-class honours degree.

Studying at Loughborough allowed Katie to explore her passion for sport. Katie played in the ladies lacrosse teams at Loughborough as well as following other opportunities including climbing Machu Picchu in Peru. She hopes she can use her sporting knowledge and background to encourage sporting activities at the school throughout the year that are fun and engaging for the students.

Katie is looking forward to working at Taunton International School having previously worked for language travel company Education First, where she was an activity leader for International students. Katie looks forward to the challenges the role of Graduate Resident Assistant is going to bring, and she hopes this role will allow her to help the students to be the best that they can be throughout their time at Taunton School.
