Cherry Point, NC - Class of 2012
Major: Marine and Environmental Sciences  
ABOUT KATIE

I’m the youngest of five daughters, born and raised in Cherry Point, North Carolina. I’ve always loved the water and fish, and I am majoring in Marine Environmental Sciences. I knew I wanted to join the military when I saw my dad’s pride in retiring as a Gunnery Sergeant from the USMC.

My hobbies include band, choir, water polo, crew, but most of my time is spent doing homework or studying. When I go home, I love hanging out at the beach and paintballing with my family and friends. As far as books go, I love thrillers, and as for movies, I love comedies. My favorite food has to be my mom’s pumpkin roll and that is tied with my grandma’s homemade gnocchis! Mmmm…they’re delicious!

I’m very excited about taking classes involving my major, and although I’m glad to be here at the Academy, cannot wait to graduate and join the fleet.
