Katie McMahon

Katie has been skiing since she could walk and has loved it ever since. Her love of the sport and motivation to improve makes her a blast to train with! Last year was her third year with the big girls (senior As). This upcoming season she hopes to finish mid-pack, complete her second 30km race and make it to the semi-finals in the sprinting events. In the long term she hopes to continuously improve and race internationally. Last spring she graduated from the University of Ottawa with a degree in Human Kinetics and also received her certification as an Exercise Physiologist. Currently, Katie is a coach with the Chelsea Nordiq racing team and is loving every minute of it. Katie has competed in both National Cross Country Skiing and Canoe/Kayak National Championships in a span of seven months! In her non-skiing time Katie love musicals although she won't admit to how many she owns or has seen or knows the words too.
