Katherine grew up in New York City, and has been performing her whole life. Her first professional role in theater was at the former Amato Opera on the Bowery, where she performed as the First Soprano Spirit in their production of The Magic Flute as a fifth grader.  After graduating from the all-girls Brearley School, she attended Bard College for a year before transferring to NYU Tisch School of the Arts, from which she graduated with a BFA in Acting in 2015. At Bard and NYU Katherine also pursued writing and art history.

Since graduating, Katherine has continued to write and perform in NYC in addition to working within the literary and production sides of theater. She is still searching for a practical application for her knowledge of 18th-Century French Decorative Arts.
