Social Media Intern
Master Certified Sport Psychology Coach
Kaci has been working with Professional, Collegiate & Elite High School Athletes & their families, for more than 23 years and taught Sport & Performance Psychology at multiple Universities.
As a natural athlete, Kaci competed in a wide variety of sports including tennis, golf, swimming, basketball, volleyball, and racquetball, but ultimately accepted a scholarship and played Division I softball at Belmont University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Business and Marketing. As a North/South All-Star, MVP and Player of the Year, Kaci consistently maintained the highest batting average, ending her senior year at .562. After an injury took her out of the running for the 2000 Olympics, Kaci became attuned with the unique needs of high performing athletes and how mental health and optimal performance go hand in hand.
While still in the throws of sport competition, Kaci accepted internships with ASCAP and NSAI, and was contracted by several publishing companies and labels to create specific marketing plans for artists across multiple genres. She was so quick in the vocal booth, that it wasn’t uncommon for her to cut background vocals for a new artist’s album and a writer ask her to lay down a lead vocal on a song she’d never heard.
With a desire to merge her talents, experience and passion for music and sports, Kaci returned to graduate school and completed a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, focusing on Sport & Performance Psychology, graduating with a 4.0 and highest honors. She presents nationally on the unique mental health issues elite athletes and their families face. With Catch23, Kaci works primarily with Athletes from Professional, Collegiate and Elite High School Levels, helping maximize performance inside and out of sport and thrive in their personal lives.
Kaci not only coaches from a performance psychology approach, but is a Licensed Professional Counselor allowing her to work with clients on a variety of concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief & loss, relationships and other clinical issues.
Based in Nashville, TN, Catch23 Performance is one of the Nation's leading resources for Athletes and their Families across the United States and internationally who desire to achieve optimal performance levels and are ready to do what it takes to bypass their competitors.
Her unique approach combines Performance Psychology techniques, and when needed, Clinical Mental Health Counseling to consistently produce holistically sound, top performers.
