Kat began her performing career at the tender age of 5. She has studied various movement and performing arts, but was introduced to circus when she saw a core show at Teatro ZinZanni. Years later, she found herself as a member of the ZinZanni education team where she fell in love with spreading the joy of circus. Kat earned her B.A. in Anthropology with a minor in Environmental Sciences and is also a passionate educator in outdoor recreation and nature studies. Her circus specialty is aerial sling, but she’s also studied contortion and Lyra and loves to bring her dance background into aerial arts. On the weekends, you can find her paddle boarding, rock climbing, or with her nose in a book.
