The one and only hockey player in the family, Jenner also has a keen eye for marketing. Enjoying business, she is studying a degree in Business Management, majoring in marketing.

A soldier within the team, Kate has played with a fractured thumb and has previously fractured her foot, as well as overcoming quad injuries.
