remembers at the age of 13 rollerblading to weekly step aerobic classes at the local YMCA. As a Division One college athlete, hip-hop dancer, and now fitness competitor, Katy is always studying multiple areas of fitness, to keep the challenge and fun in fitness.
After a year of study abroad in Costa Rica, and receiving her second degree at U.C. Irvine, Katy studied and worked at a cooking school. There she "fell in love with beautiful and flavourful food". Opening a small catering business and then a cafe in China, where she raised her three children, Katy introduced a healthy and fresh menu to locals and foreigners alike!
Finally the two worlds collide! Katy is now focusing on motivating both the young and the old alike, with her healthy and nutritious approach to food, and her active lifestyle program. From teaching hands-on cooking classes at in-home parties, to speaking to groups of high school girls about self-esteem or creating a "Katy style" personalized workout for the busy career man, Katy is here to help you succeed.
Focusing on a comprehensive, balanced and realistic approach to a healthy food and fitness lifestyle, Katy desires everyone to be healthy and happy! She has also appeared as a finalist on Food Network Star Season 7 showcasing her Light and Luscious point of view.
Her workouts and real-time coaching are available at PEAR Sports.
