Katie has 18 years of experience in progressive leadership roles (lifeguard, pool operator, programmer, facility manager) in the aquatic industry. Katie is passionate about teaching Lifesaving Society, Canadian Red Cross, and Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) - formerly National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) - classes to students in Canada and around the world.

Whether you are new to aquatics or a life-long poolie, Katie can provide the support and mentorship you need to succeed. In 2020, Katie started the POOLaide webinars because she saw a critical need to bring the aquatics industry together during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
