Pure Barre at Sea: Join us June 8-15 for a Princess Cruise to the Caribbean! Learn More


Katie was introduced to Pure Barre in Columbia, MO in 2013 while she was in nursing school at Mizzou. As a former dancer, she instantly fell in love with the studio vibe, the technique and the physical and mental challenge of class. Katie moved to Des Moines in 2015 and began teaching when Pure Barre WDM opened in 2017. She loves taking and teaching all class formats (don’t make her pick a favorite!) and interacting with all of the incredible women who make Pure Barre WDM so special. Outside of the studio, Katie loves cooking and spending time with her husband, Chris, her son, Russell, and her pup, Miss Patty.
