Katie was born and raised in Connecticut where she had a successful junior career showing on the A circuit. After moving to Virginia for college, she then worked as a veterinary technician and veterinary office manager and began teaching on the side. Her passion was in teaching and caring for the horses, and thus began Shades of Bay, in 2008.
Since then, Katie has helped students earn ribbons at Devon, Pony Finals, Harrisburg, WIHS, Zone Finals, as well as year end accolades with USEF, VHSA and MHSA. She especially enjoys bringing along young ponies and horses. Currently, she sits on the board of directors for the Maryland Horse Shows Association, as the Vice President.
