With 2 years experience in the media industry at Chelsea TV and Input Media, Katie is excited to finally specialise and learn the skills of a sports journalist.

Originally from Kingston, the 24 year old enjoys a busy and vibrant lifestyle. She is a Sports Reporter and Newsreader in Radio Jackie's busy newsroom, whilst also presenting for a Non-league football show. Katie also enjoys writing for the The Hockey Paper and Women's Soccer Zone. But, most importantly, she loves studying part-time for her masters at St. Mary's.

As a former England Hockey Player, Katie definitely has a bias towards hockey as well as being an avid Arsenal supporter. Football, rugby, cycling, athletics and darts are all sports she loves to watch.

Highlights in Katie's career have to be reporting for the Darts on Dave live at the BDO World Trophy, covering the WSL for the BBC Women's Football Show, and more recently, reporting live at the FA Cup third round for Radio Jackie.

Katie is extremely interested in pursuing a career in Sports Journalism, focusing particularly on broadcasting in both radio and television.
