She started her flow journey in 2012 when she saw a woman selling shiny hula hoops at a local festival. It was then that she fell in love! Since then Katie has dabbled in a variety of circus and flow arts including hooping, fire eating, hand balancing, and juggling. Katie began eating fire two years ago and enjoys the gasps from the audience as the flame gets extinguished in her mouth. She is a self-proclaimed inversion junkie, with a background in gymnastics and dance. Katie truly loves to spin all the things and is inspired by prop manipulation of all kinds!
