Katey Mermaid, Ohio's First Mermaid, discovered her fins in 2009. Making her first tail out of spandex, a finis monofin and a little bit of creativity, she quickly became a natural in the water. Katey has always had a love for the ocean, and all the creatures in it. Katey is also an advocate for diversity in mermaiding. She was one of the first performers to branch away from the traditional mermaid aesthetic, and is now known for her extremely short hair.
