Katie Nelson returns to JHU's coaching staff for her fifth season in 2013-2014. Nelson is the first-ever full time assistant for the women's basketball program. She works primarily with the Blue Jay guards, while also assisting in scouting, recruiting and game-planning.

Nelson, the daughter of current Johns Hopkins men's basketball coach Bill Nelson, has served stints as an assistant coach at Navy (2007-08) and New Hampshire (2008-09) since beginning her coaching career. In both instances she worked primarily with the team's guards and assisted with all scouting, game-planning and recruiting. At Navy she also helped coordinate all video operations, including film breakdown and scouting.

Nelson played at the University of Massachusetts from 2001-06, started all four years at point guard and served as a team captain as a senior. She concluded her career as the school's all-time leader in three-point field goals (191) and assist-to-turnover ratio (1:36) and also ranked among the top five in assists (366), games started (103) and minutes played (3,632). During her career she was named to both the Atlantic 10 and Athletic Director's Honor Roll and was a member of the UMass Student Athlete Advisory Committee.

After graduating from UMass with a degree in sports management and a minor in sociology, Nelson served as a coaching intern with the WNBA's Washington Mystics for one season and later served one year with the Mystics' video operations staff.

Nelson attended the McDonogh School in Baltimore and was a four-year letterwinner in soccer, basketball and softball. In basketball, she guided McDonogh to the A.I.S. championship in 1998 and 1999 and the team was ranked as high as 25th in the country by USA Today. She served as a team captain of all three sports as a senior and earned First Team All-Baltimore City, Second Team All-Metro, Second Team All-State and McDonogh School Female Athlete of the Year honors.
