Mary Kate Burgess
Mary Kate’s love of sports began at an early age and was further solidified while watching college football, especially the Florida Gators, with her dad.
That passion led to many athletic endeavors during her high school and collegiate years. While in high school, M.K. ran track, played basketball, tennis and lacrosse. She competed in club lacrosse while in college, and she began running half marathons just over a year ago.
Born in Virginia, M.K. grew up in New Jersey, Texas and Missouri. She graduated from the University of Missouri in 2015, with a bachelor’s degree in Radio/TV Journalism. M.K. loves the outdoors, reading, trying new cooking recipes and cheering on the Gators and her Mizzou Tigers – not necessarily in that order.
