Katie reports for FOX56 News First at Ten and is excited to be making the move to the East Coast! As an Austin, Texas native, Katie has traded in her bounty of tacos and BBQ for snowy winters and the Pocono Mountains.
Before coming to Pennsylvania, Katie studied Converged Broadcast Media and International Studies at the University of North Texas in Denton. For several years she worked at the university’s Emmy-winning television station, North Texas Television, as an anchor, reporter and producer.
During her collegiate years, Katie interned for NBCUniversal in Los Angeles and Ryan Seacrest Studios in Dallas at Children’s Health Medical Center. She also studied abroad in Chile, served as the Director of Career and Personal Development for her women’s organization, and spearheaded the founding of a TEDx committee at UNT.
In recent months, Katie could be found at blueberry harvest in Skagit Valley, Washington, soaking up food culture in Israel, or photographing people and events in New York City. Aside from the newsroom, Katie is an avid TED Talk viewer, traveler, foodie, and music and theatre enthusiast. Oh, and can’t forget those Texas Longhorns. Hook em’!
Katie looks forward to adding many more sweaters to her collection and going skiing for the first time!
