Personal: Uhlaender loves to ski, snowboard, kite board and craves speed, which is one of the reasons she began skeleton. ...She "loves the feeling of getting power off the start block."...Uhlaender also enjoys photography, writing, film, and her favorite book is "The Fountainhead." ...After her sliding career, Katie would like to become a producer or writer so that she can combine her "writing and photographic skills in a creative way."
