Katie grew up in the Bay Area, oscillating between a West Oakland metal foundry and the rolling Berkeley Hills. As she grew, so did her love for acting. 

Katie developed this passion performing in countless plays throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, until she went to Harvard University to get her MFA in Acting, where she trained concurrently at the Moscow Art Theatre School. 

Since graduating, Katie has moved to L.A. and can already be found in a number of  television and stage projects.  

In addition to acting, Katie also writes and directs - focusing on fish-out-water stories that explore the comedy in isolation (she's an only child).
