Katie first broke into the White Ferns in 2012 and although having played only a handful of games, she has quickly established herself in the middle-order for the side.
The Auckland based star had a magnificent 2011/2012 summer for the Auckland Hearts and was a key part of their success winning the 50 over Action Cricket competition.
Her terrific form lead to the talented 23 year-old being called upon for national duties and travelled with the White ferns to Australia for the Twenty20 series and Rose Bowl competition.
She was immediately successful, as she scored 31 in her first match. She continued to have a great first series and cemented her spot in the side for the England series later that summer.
During these matches she scored her first half century for the Ferns and after five ODI matches had an impressive average of just over 40.
Her coach and team mates have praised how quickly she found her feet at international level and have labelled her an upcoming star.
Katie has also a great deal of success outside of cricket, having used to work for New Zealand Rugby League and now a Police constable in Counties Manukau.
