Katie Kinkead

Katie was a competitive soccer player who used running to get in shape. In her freshman year of high school she decided to join the cross country team, and by that spring she stopped playing soccer in order to run year round. Katie had an outstanding high school career, and ran collegiately at Syracuse. The sport has taught Katie a lot about discipline, mental toughness, and strategy – principles she uses in every aspect of her life. Running for Katie is now about enjoyment, improvement, and team camaraderie. Katie is a regional manager at PayPal focusing on go-to market strategies for product launches. Outside of work, she enjoys long walks with her dog, cooking, pottery, rock climbing, and traveling.
