Katherine Dunn: Athletic Background

Hi y’all! I’m Katherine. I am the Marketing & Communications Manager at Rise – I head the newsletters, flyers, website, Facebook ads, and Wodify announcements. I joined the Rise team after moving from Texas in 2016. I grew up on a cattle ranch next to the Bluebell Ice Cream Factory. So be my friend and talk to me about tacos, cowboy boots, and red dirt country music.

I love movement of any kind and spent my childhood and adult life playing & competing in a variety of sports. I grew up playing soccer, volleyball, and practicing gymnastics. I rode Hunter Jumper Horseback for 7 years and ran cross country in high school. In college, I continued long distance running on my own, played powder puff football all 4 years, and fell in love with CrossFit. I love the community, the focus on functional movement, and let’s face it – throwing around heavy weight is fun!

Apart from the incredible people that make up the Rise community, I stick around because the workouts are challenging and the environment holds me accountable to my own fitness goals.


A creative spirit & can-do attitude
