My passion in Performance Psychology began while growing up as a competitive athlete in both gymnastics and pole vault. From a young age, I had an interest and passion in the internal drivers that help performers reach their peak performance. Through my knowledge and training in Performance Psychology this passion grew as I saw the positive impact that mental skills training and preparation can have on the lives of all performers. Today, I strive to provide performers with the access to these performance enhancing tools to help individuals find success. I enjoy working with individuals/organizations to find the best applications for Performance Psychology across all performance domains.
Kathryn grew up in North Carolina where she competed at a high level in gymnastics for 12 years. She began pole vaulting in high school where she was the Missouri State Champion and went on to pole vault at the Division 1 program at Drake University.
Kathryn earned her Masters of Science in Performance Psychology from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She completed her thesis on the perception of stress among NCAA head coaches focusing on gender differences. In Edinburgh, she worked as a Performance Consultant for Edinburgh City Football Club, providing performance based services to professional soccer players. Kathryn completed her undergraduate Psychology degree with a minor in Marketing at Drake University being involved in leadership research and an active member of the student-athletic associations.
Kathryn is excited to be managing Synergy Performance’s clients through supporting the sport teams, individuals, and organizations. Kathryn is new to the Greenville area and in her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family in Colorado, trying new restaurants, and everything outdoors (hiking, biking, and running).
