Katie has studied improvisational comedy at the DC Improv, Washington Improv Theater, and Dad's Garage in Atlanta. She has studied with members of the Upright Citizens Brigade (New York) and The Annoyance Theatre (Chicago).

She’s been performing regularly in the DC area for three years. Katie was one of the founding members of local independent improv team Aboulia! and was a member of WIT Harold team Breaker Breaker.
