Kat is also an accomplished singer/songwriter who has studied singing at the University of MN and at her alma mater Salve Regina University. She has written and performed solo at many venues across the country, including the acclaimed Feinstein's/54 Below, and internationally in Greece.  

Acting has always been her big love and she performed all throughout childhood, which lead her to get a BA in Theatre at Salve Regina University and a certificate from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in NYC. She has performed in plays and musicals including: Young Edie in Grey Gardens, Viola in Twelfth Night, Claire in Proof, Martha in Children's Hour, Sam in Some Girl(s), Corryn Fell in Gideon's Knot. This led to Kat starring in the world premiere of A Season for Vivaldi at the Music Box theater in Minneapolis.

Kat's breakout role in film was her starring role as Marion Fish in the film The Horror, which you can catch on Amazon Prime.

In NYC Kat has made her off-broadway debut in at Joe's Pub with On Wednesdays We Dress Like Women and was an extra with the cast of Great Comet on the 2017 Tony Awards. You can catch her in an improv show at the Under St. Marks Theater called Improvised Buffy on the first Tuesday of every month!
