Shannon Sharpe's Ex Wife-To-Be Katy Kellner - When did They Split Up?

Katy Kellner is a fitness instructor who works at the Float Fitness Studio and is also the senior master instructor at the cycle bar. Just looking at her, it is clear; the one thing she never misses in a day is the gym. As much as she is beautiful, she is equally buff and physically fit.

Katy was born in 1981 to her parents in Atlanta, where the early years of her childhood flew by. Not being a public figure, Katy is extremely protective of her personal and family life, but we do know she is a student of Elmhurst College, where she studied Arts and earned a degree in the field from the University.

After getting her Bachelor’s degree, the fitness instructor made her way to Troy University in Alabama, where she studied Instructional Technology and obtained her Master’s degree. She finished her Master’s and moved back to Atlanta, where she started teaching in Fulton Public School. She stayed in the school for ten years and then decided to quit becoming an educator and started in her career as an instructor, and this was also the reason she met her then-fiance Shannon Sharpe.
