Katy graduated from Exeter in 2021 with a BSc in Exercise and Sport Science. After being voted in as AU President, she wants to make the student sport experience at Exeter as good as possible by working with the Athletics Union and making sure the student voice is heard. In particular, her manifesto outlines how she aims to focus on inclusivity, support and providing more opportunities for students to get physically active.

Over the years Katy has participated in a variety of sports and seized the opportunity at university to try some new sports, like surfing and golf. She is also a keen runner and having ran a few half marathons, completing a marathon is something she aspires to achieve at some point. When not playing sport herself, you may find Katy showing her passion with coaching too!
