KATI ROUSE: OWNER/OPERATIONS
After graduating from Rhodes College where I majored in Biology, served as a student trainer, and ran track and cross country, I did some graduate work in Exercise Physiology at the University of Memphis. I am a licensed athletic trainer, having worked at Campbell Clinic Orthopedics and Baptist Rehab with many high school and college athletes. My work with youth in Memphis also included numerous climbing, rafting, hiking, and ski trips. It was when I was getting my CPR renewal in Memphis that I unexpectedly met this fly fishing guide who was getting ready to go to Alaska for the rainbow season. Little did I know that just over year later we would get married, move to the Little Red River, and I would join him for two more seasons in Alaska at Rainbow King Lodge. It was certainly the beginning of a new adventure for me! Since then, I have served as a board member and secretary of Trout Unlimited Ch. 722 and am currently on the board of the Little Red River Foundation. Since our location didn’t provide me an opportunity to ply my trade as an athletic trainer, I trained my sights on becoming an integral part of Rouse Fly Fishing, which has been a blast! Obviously, I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors, and now we enjoy the outdoors together with the rest of our pack—Allie, Thomas, Gus, our yellow Lab, and Lucy our rescue dog. You can keep up with our adventures and get some great outdoor tips on my blog, Getting Outdoors.
