Born in Southern California, this marketing maven, fitness model, and athlete began her sports career as a young girl. As soon as she could walk, she loved to play any and every sport she could. At the age of 7, Karin moved out to Greenwood Village, Colorado with her family, grew up in Centennial, and attended Cherry Creek High School where she lettered in Cross-Country, Swimming, and Lacrosse. She got recruited to play lacrosse in college, and went on to play NCAA DI Women’s Lacrosse for the University of Denver - graduating from DU in 2011with a BSBA in Marketing.
Hart is a Cancer Survivor! She was diagnosed with Papillary Thyroid Cancer at the beginning of her Junior year of college. Her “LiveSTRONG Day” (the day she found out she had cancer) is September 16, 2009, a life-changing day for her that she will never forget. She successfully beat cancer after undergoing two surgeries, radioactive iodine treatment, and years of balancing her thyroid hormones post-thyroidectomy. She might have battled cancer in college, but she didn’t let cancer slow her down throughout her Division I collegiate lacrosse career, as she competed on her team all 4 seasons to earn her 4-year letter award upon graduation.
Karin has played many sports throughout her life including lacrosse, swimming, tennis, soccer, horseback riding, volleyball, basketball, skiing/snowboarding, softball, track/cross-country running, figure skating, and ballet/dance. Although she did not play golf growing up, she took up golf in August 2015 and instantly fell in love with the sport!

Karin resides in St. Petersburg, Florida, 20 minutes outside of Tampa, Florida, and snuggled between the Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. She moved here from her long-time home of Denver, Colorado in November 2019 and enjoys being closer to the beach and the warmer temperatures throughout the year that Florida provides. Karin has a 10 year old dog named Grover, a mutt/"potcake pup" rescue from the Bahamas, that she adopted in Colorado when he was a puppy. He loves living in Florida with her and as she puts it - he is living out his life-long dream of "retiring in Florida".
Karin is a huge fitness advocate and likes to workouts 5 times a week. She loves going to Orangetheory Fitness, training with her personal trainer, and using the Tone It Up app for programs, workouts, nutrition tips, workout gear, protein shakes, and more. She enjoys going for runs and taking her dog on long walks in downtown St. Pete.
Karin's birthday is March 17th, and as a Pisces and water sign, she loves spending time near the water - at pools, the beach/ocean/rivers/lakes.
