Katherine Kitfield - aka Kat - always has a smile on her face. She fell in love with aerial when she was a child visiting Cirque du Soleil in Montreal - and had the opportunity to start training after moving to New York City in 2011. Since then, she's found her focus with lyra, silks, and gymnastics conditioning. Her joie de vivre is being active, learning new movements, and mastering technique! Originally from Vermont, Kat is a Wesleyan University graduate and post-graduate fellow in writing & studio art. In the daylight hours, she directs marketing for Power Monkey Fitness, and previously worked for women's rights organizations in Bangladesh and Kenya. As Kat strives to be a source of kindness and love for those around her, her soul finds its strength and purpose through flight!
