Katie Glaser’s social media
If watching Katie as a deckhand has you wanting to see more about her life, then you can follow her on Instagram.
Katie’s handle is @kmglaser and she currently has just over 4,000 followers, though that is a number likely to increase as more episodes of Below Deck air!
Nearly all Katie’s pictures are of her on the beach or the water. This isn’t surprising, given that she “spends nearly as much time in the water as she does on it.”
A fan of snorkelling, wakeboarding, and swimming, Katie clearly prefers sea to land.
