Katie recently moved here from Maryland and is enjoying the warm weather!  She was OW certified at Gigglin Marlin in May 2018 and fell so in love with diving that she asked to work here!  Although she graduated from Virginia Tech with a BA in Creative Writing/Literature, she wanted to be a Marine Biologist when she was a kid.  Scuba diving allows her to experience the magical, underwater world and she is looks forward to continuing her underwater education!

When she’s not working at the store, you can find her at home snuggling with her pets while reading a good book.  A self-proclaimed crazy cat/dog/horse lady, Katie loves volunteering at Houston Pets Alive! animal shelter, fostering kittens, and riding horses.  She also loves traveling, sports, good food/drinks, and writing.
