Katie was lucky enough to grow up around the circus – with several siblings involved in SANCA, she experimented with taking a circus class when she was 6. However, it turned out that she much preferred to watch others perform than to perform herself, and instead became involved behind the scenes. She worked backstage when SANCA’s youth company first began performing, then later was involved working SASS and AYCO.
Outside of SANCA Katie has an equally impressive resume of working shows – she’s been a roadie for Carrie Underwood and Fleetwood Mac, and has worked for Tahoma High School as a Deck Manager for over 4 years (and counting!). She followed her passion and earned a degree with an emphasis in theater.
Katie also has a love of working with power tools and has participated in numerous remodeling projects. She helped design and build a basement apartment and has had a hand in building sets for multiple productions. She loves a challenge, but not when people get too excited about making one for her.
You’ll know Katie by her contagious smile, her devoted love of dogs (especially her own fur child!), and her eagerness to help everyone succeed.
