Katherine began dancing in Dexter, MI when she was 3 years old, focusing mainly on jazz, ballet, and lyrical styles.

The next year, she began studying under studio owner Miss Rebecca. Her involvement with competitive dance continued into high school. It was around this time that she developed a particular interest in choreography.
Katherine left Dexter for Chicago to study writing and photography, taking any chance to dance or choreograph while she was at college, and often coming home to help out at Studio 3 when she could. After graduating in 2019, Katherine moved back to Dexter. Nowadays, she works as a freelance photographer and writer with the help of her cat, Peanut Butter, and is lucky enough to be back at Studio 3–this time to teach!
