​​​​She started her film career at twelve years old as a stunt performer on the TV series “Werewolf.” Immersed in the arts, she grew up on her father’s film sets while studying lighting and composition in her mother’s photography studio. Katie attended Loyola Marymount University as a film major with a minor in studio art/photography and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1999. 

Working her way up through the camera department, she became a member of IATSE local 600 and was invited to be a member of the prestigious, Society of Operating Cameramen. In 2003 on the mini series “La Femme Musketeer,” Katie began her journey as a camera operator specializing in Steadicam. She operated for over 15 years on many major motion pictures and television projects. During this time she regularly directed 2nd units and in 2014 she became a member of the Directors Guild of America.
