Biography

Katie was active in both performance and sports from the time she was a child. She competed in dance and singing as well as horseback riding, synchronized swimming and competitive swimming. She received her BFA from the University of Windsor in Canada and moved on to work as an actor in theatre and television. In 2008 she completed her RYT 200hr yoga certification with Reflections Yoga in NYC and began teaching yoga. In Canada she taught Restorative yoga, Vinyasa Flow and most recently worked with semi professional athletes in their off-season training (ice-hockey and basketball) on alignment, balance, flexibility and strength training. In 2013/14 she completed her first amateur film project called Beauty Movement, in which she collaborated with international drag performer, Miss Conception. She is currently working on her MA Movement: Directing and Teaching at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. In the summer of 2015, Katie will be working with Arcola Theatre on two projects; an intergenerational piece for the Glastonbury Festival, Shangri-La, and Bartok’s Bluebeard’s Castle, performed with large-scale puppets in Queen Elizabeth Park.
