Katie was born in Philadelphia and fell in love with the Arts at just two years of age after being introduced to the world of musicals. She immediately began singing, dancing and acting at every available opportunity. An accomplished child performer, Katie received a music scholarship to University of Miami, where she went on to graduate, cum laude, from the Musical Theater Conservatory, with both a double major in music and theater and a double minor in film and television.
Katie began her casting career as the assistant to a prominent casting director in Miami’s South Beach. In 2002, Katie moved to New York City and, as a casting director, began building relationships with major networks and production companies while laying the foundation needed to launch her own agency. Katie’s work ethic, combined with her out of the box approach, earned her instant success in New York and she was soon traveling the world casting for major network television shows. “I leave no stone unturned when searching for talent. That is my promise to my clients.” With this promise, Katie continues to cast talent across the country and around the world.
