Katie’s passion for musical theatre stems from her personal experiences participating in youth theatre camps starting as young as 8 years old. Some of Katie’s favorite roles were Tracy Turnblad (Hairspray), Melpomene (Xanadu), Sylvia (All Shook Up) and Rona Lisa Peretti (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee). The mentorship she received from directors and choreographers as a child enabled her to find confidence in all aspects of her life.
Katie wholeheartedly believes that the skills and lessons learned while rehearsing, performing, and supporting behind the scenes efforts lay the groundwork for her success as an adult. Katie also works with middle and high school students at Disneyland where she facilitates both Performing Arts and Educational Workshops. As a new member of the Spotlight team she is eager to pass along her knowledge to help young performers blossom on and off stage.
