Kathi Katko
Kathi KatkoPrima
Kathi Katko is a Physical Therapist by profession but also loves dogs, travel and cycling!! And of course Pink 🙂 I have been a PT for over 27 years and have had many hobbies. I have been cycling for the past 7-8 years. I started riding to get ready for a cycling tour in Italy on a hybrid. I loved it do much that I bought a road bike and kept riding. Next I went to Austria and the Czech Republic. Absolutely beautiful trips. For the past 3 years I have been growing and pushing my comfort level. I have explored the mountains of SC/NC, rode my first Century in Lake Tahoe, and this past year completed The Ride To Remember, 3 days, 252 miles of Fun with my Divas! I have attended the Marietta Camp the past three years. I have found my family at Diva Camp. I love learning new skills and making life long friends. I want to share my love of cycling with more divas.
Caroline Day
Caroline Day Prima
Caroline was born in England then came over to the USA in late 1989, bright eyed and ready to work, travel and find new experiences. I guess she did all of the above as, save a couple of family illnesses, she didn’t go back! I found jobs in technology and was able to get a Green Card and eventually Bill Clinton made her a citizen!
She’s lived in a number of different places in the US, all along the east coast, and settled in the south for its sunny climes, 4 seasons and warm winters.
She’s always liked to be active – she’s hiked, kayaked, rowed, and started running and riding a hybrid bike (slowly) when she lived in Atlanta, but it wasn’t until she moved to charlotte in 2000 for a job with a startup company that she got more into the running community and ran 3 marathons!
Life got in the way after a few years and she lost her fitness and gained quite a few pounds. It was about 2 years ago that she decided to take up road biking, thinking that a somewhat lighter bike than my 40-lb hybrid would make me faster and she’d be right there with every group ride. Well ok then, maybe not! 2 years of riding, working on fitness, sprint triathlons and discovering TotalCyclist and the Diva Camps, latterly along with excellent coaching, has made me leaner, healthier and yes, faster.
2017 has been a transformative year – losing 40 lbs, riding across South Carolina with a group of Divas for charity, 100 miles through London England, the odd Gran Fondo, and a PR on a half marathon is way beyond anything she expected to happen She cant wait to see what the next year will bring!
My favorite things to do now are – cycle and travel, perhaps with a little wine so Diva camps are perfect for me! And there’s still a little running in there too.
Some other fun facts:
She’s hosted wine tastings and karaoke parties, my children are felines ;-), she works with an animal rescue, once went scuba diving with sharks, sings a mean ‘Black Velvet’ and she’s a big Elvis fan.
Dionne Fleshman
Dionne FleshmanPrima
My Name is Dionne M. Fleshman and I am a cyclist out of Columbia, South Carolina. I have been cycling for about 15 months and I absolutely love it. I am 45 years old, wife of 20 years and mom to 2 teenage boys ages 14 and 16. My 14 year has high functioning Autism and my bike has been a way to bring me focus and clarity in living the life of a special needs household.

I live in Columbia, SC and have most of my life. I have my undergraduate degree from South Carolina State University, and my Masters degree from Mercer University in Atlanta, GA. I own my own Human Sources firm and have been in business for 10 years this past October.
When I am not riding my bike, I enjoy photography, spending time with my family and reading.

Fran Lasowski
Fran LasowskiPrima
Hailing from Hamilton, ON in Canada, I’m very honoured to be in the first cohort of Prima Divas! I started road biking 4 years ago as a way to get some more exercise and participate in the Ride for Sight, a cause close to my heart given that my PhD has focused on improving vision and eye health particularly in children. I participated in my first Diva camp in 2014 and fell in love with the people, the challenges and my bike (even when I was dragging it up Potts Mountain). I now try to get out with my 2 year old daughter and my husband (when he’s not watching football). I’ve been working with Rocket for a few months now to make better lifestyle choices, and am very excited to share what I’ve learnt and to bring the joy of group rides and cycling to women in the Hamilton community!
