Katarina grew up in different places but has lived in eastern Washington since 2012. She graduated with her Bachelor of Business Administration from Gonzaga University and is currently attending Gonzaga’s MBA program. Growing up, Katarina participated in dance for many years and also did a little bit of gymnastics and cheer. She started working at Spokane Gymnastics in 2023. Although not a coach herself, Katarina believes in the important impact that gymnastics has on students’ physical, emotional, and mental health. She describes her leadership style as leading by example and not making anyone do anything that she wouldn’t do herself.
Outside of Spokane Gymnastics, Katarina enjoys cooking, reading, hanging out with friends and family, and learning new things. She loves to explore Spokane and try new restaurants. A fun fact about Katarina lived on a pig farm as a teenager where she showed pigs at the local fair every year.
