Even though Katie feels like the above bullet-point-game is the best way to get to know her, she also feels like she's supposed to say certain backstory-type stuff...so if you want to learn more, keep reading...
A proud Chicago native, Katie decided to keep it local and attend Northwestern University. Two years in, she chose to trade in her Division I hockey scholarship for a degree in theatre and film (insert parents' cries here)! It was the best/scariest decision she ever made, and - after graduating from Northwestern - she began her pursuit in comedy, studying at Second City, Comedysportz, iO, and eventually landing at The Groundlings in Los Angeles.
Some of Katie's commercial credits include a Bojangles commercial campaign [shooting 4 spots as their Master Biscuit Maker (one alongside golfing great Bubba Watson)], as well as spots for Walmart, Samsung, NY Life, NFL, The General, and more.
Some movie credits include: Act Naturally (the first feature film that she co-wrote, co-produced and starred in), supporting roles in Go For It [opposite Aimee Garcia (of Dexter), distributed by Lionsgate], This Is Now [opposite Alicia Minshew (of All My Children), Nadia Bjorlin (of Days of Our Lives), and Luis Moncada (of Breaking Bad), and Lore: Deadly Obsession. She can also be seen playing ‘Faithful Companion’ (a wannabe superhero and dedicated sidekick) in Super Group Therapy, a witty web-series about super heroes in therapy.
