Prior to coming to Team IMPACT, Katie spent the last 12 years of her career in a higher education setting, spending 10 years at Mount Ida College and most recently at Fisher College. Over that 12-year span she spent the majority of her career working in Athletics, serving in numerous administrative roles to include Senior Woman Administrator, Purchasing and Compliance Coordinator, and Operations Manager. Most recently, Katie served as the Sports Information Director at Fisher, helping to revive the Athletics website while nearly tripling the social media followers for the Falcons.
Throughout her higher ed career, she also maintained the role of Head Softball Coach for both the Mustangs and the Falcons, coaching 15 different GNAC All-Conference players and over 35 NFCA Scholar-Athletes.
A Wheaton College graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, Zuman played both shortstop and centerfield for the Lyons. As a captain in her senior year, she helped lead her team to an impressive 42-9 record along with a 3rd place finish in the NCAA Division III College World Series. She was a two-time Regional All-American, the New 8 Rookie of the Year, NEWMAC All-Conference, NEISCA All-Star and All-ECAC. She is also in the top 10 in the Wheaton Softball record book for runs scored (138), hits (189), doubles (34), triples (9), total bases (259) and games played (177). In 1999, Zuman hit two home runs in the same inning against Babson College, which is still tied for the NCAA Division III record. She still plays competitive softball as she is a member of the OSS Sharks Slowpitch softball team.
Upon graduation from Wheaton, Zuman attended Springfield College receiving her master’s degree in Sport Management.
She resides with her family in Franklin, MA.
When asked the question, “Why Team IMPACT?” Katie said:
I could not be more excited to be a part of the Team IMPACT organization simply based on the mission and goals. Since its inception I have been familiar with TI and the wonderful work it has done, having helped facilitate a match with Mount Ida and the Football Team back in 2011. I have since followed its growth and am thrilled to be able to come to work every day, combining my passion for sports while playing a small role in the greater good of the organization.
