Katie Hnida graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of New Mexico with a degree in Psychology. She is a pioneer in the world of sports, being the first woman to play, and score points, in a NCAA Division One football game.

Katie's football career started at Chatfield Senior High School in Littleton, Colorado where she played varsity football for four years. She was voted Homecoming Queen by her classmates and participated in halftime ceremonies wearing her uniform.

As a senior, she was named Colorado Sportswoman of the Year as well as Teen People Magazine's Number One Teen Most Likely to Change the World.

While attending the University of Colorado in 1999-2000, Katie became the first woman to make the football team. She then transferred to the University of New Mexico where she played three seasons for the Lobos.

In 2004, Katie spoke out publicly about the sexual harassment and rape she endured while at the University of Colorado. She has become prominent speaker on violence against women and travels the country to share her powerful story at colleges, women’s groups and other organizations. She has been a keynote speaker at numerous fundraisers, as well as, a featured speaker alongside Hilary Swank and Alec Baldwin at Mariska Hargitay’s Joyful Heart Foundation events.
