Katie O'Driscoll joined head coach Bob Ernst's staff in January 2013
as an intern assistant coach. A Boston native, she began rowing as a
walk on at Ithaca College, and instantly became enthralled with the
sport. She competed in the Varsity 8 at three national championships,
and was a captain and Pocock All-American her senior year.
Katie was part of the inaugural class of the Institute for Rowing
Leadership, the first post-graduate program to focus specifically on
coaching education in rowing. Working in partnership with Boston
University, Harvard, and Northeastern University, as well as with the
esteemed coaches of the Boston rowing community, she was immersed in
the study of all things rowing. She hopes to continue growing as a
coach in her new position with Washington Rowing.
