Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Kathy's father was a Lutheran pastor whose job moved the family across the United States and Canada the majority of her young life. Upon graduating from Rogers State University in Claremore, Oklahoma with a degree in Theater and Speech, Kathy settled in Canada in 1979. While there, she kept active in community theater; directing and producing, in particular. Upon moving to Calgary, Alberta, she seriously began to pursue additional training and attended The Company of Rogues Actors Studio.After thirty years in Canada, Kathy re-located to Allentown, Pennsylvania. Due to its close proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, this allowed her to seriously pursue acting at the ripe "old" age of 50. She attended various workshops and studied at Stella Adler Studio of Acting in Manhattan. She enjoys meeting new people in the industry, auditioning and just enjoying each step of the actors journey.Kathy opened up a professional Actors Studio (AfterWords Actors Studio) in Allentown in October 2017. She is thrilled to be able to help actors train in their craft, as well as assist with video auditions, slates and one-on-one coaching.Kathy is a mother to five children and seven grandchildren and is married to David (2005 to present).
