Kat discovered pole dancing in 2006 and found that it was the one true exercise she could maintain while providing a touch of sparkle. She has mixed the elements of strength, flexibility, and shimmer since the age of 12 as a synchronized swimmer, competing both locally and nationally. Cross training provides an essential foundation for Kat's technique. In 2013, Kat started traveling across the country to train with pole superstars, bringing the tips and tricks she learned along the way back to Richmond, Virginia. She was awarded the bronze medal for the 2014 Atlantic Pole Championships Level 4 Entertainment division and she loves bringing out the inner artiste in every student. Kat is proud to train with the many talented individuals at Soul Aerial and Performing Arts Center.
