Katelyn has a Bachelors of Science in Applied Health Science from Messiah College. Go Falcons! She grew up in the Mechanicsburg area and has stayed active within it her whole life. Katelyn played softball and field hockey.
Outside of the gym, you can find her spending time with family and friends, spending time outdoors, going for a walk with her dog, exercising, and crafting. Katelyn has a special heart for individuals with special needs. She was a volunteer therapy aid at Leg Up Farm and a buddy at Special Olympics throughout high school. Then in college, she continued to be a buddy at Special Olympics and worked as a camp counselor at Aaron’s Acres, which is where she first found out about F4F.
Katelyn became an intern at the F4F Hershey location in the summer of 2016. That fall, she joined the newly opened Mechanicsburg location. She came on board at Fitness 4 Focus because she understands the necessity for exercise for individuals with special needs. She enjoys using her passion to make an impact in their lives.
Katelyn loves being able to not only help athletes’ with their fitness goals but with other aspects of their life too. F4F has made her realize that the smallest things can make a big impact in the lives of our athletes and their family. This was a great lesson for her life outside of the gym as well. One athlete that has particularly impressed her started at the gym shortly after the Mechanicsburg location opened. He could only do a small jump - now he is able to jump far and do a box jump. Katelyn can’t wait to see how many boxes he can jump onto.
