Natalie Kimberly "Kim" Seybold-Catron (born September 18, 1965)[1] is an American former pair skater. Competing with her brother Wayne Seybold, she won five senior international medals, became a two-time U.S. national silver medalist, and competed at the 1988 Winter Olympics.[1] The pair grew up in Marion, Indiana and were coached by Ronald Ludington from 1984 in Wilmington, Delaware.[2]

Seybold married a former hockey player, Mark Catron, with whom she has two daughters, Kaitlyn and Ashley.[3] She underwent operations to remove a brain tumor in 1995, 2002 and 2006, resulting in numbness on the right side of her face and hearing loss in her right ear.[4][3]
