My name is Katie Grace Olinger, and I was born and raised in Gainesville, Florida. I attended Oak Hall School from preschool through twelfth grade, and upon graduating, I signed an NLI to play softball at the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill.
I am now a redshirt sophomore pitcher on the UNC Women’s Softball team, and I will be returning to school in the Spring of 2020 as a junior in the Hussman School of Journalism and Media where I am studying Advertising and Public Relations with a focus in Sports Communication.
My biggest pride and joy is my puppy/Emotional Support Animal, Poppy Joe. She is the light of my life and my best friend in the whole world. However, it would not be fair to mention her without mentioning my boyfriend of five years, Matt, who is also my best friend but will get booted from the bed if Poppy feels the need for more personal space during sleep 😉
My favorite things to do in my free time are playing with Poppy, taking Poppy for walks, and cuddling with Poppy (As I said, BEST FRIEND).
I have two sisters, Brittney and Reece. Brittney, 23, is currently living in London and working in a bank while Reece, 16, is a sophomore in high school. I am the middle child, and as you will probably find out, I most definitely suffer from aspects of middle child syndrome 🙂
