Quotes from Students....
"Katie is the best there is! She helps me to understand the motivation of my characters so I can give my most authentic and powerful delivery. She has been the key to all my successful auditions and I honestly don’t know what I would do without her brilliance, insight and coaching. More importantly she is the kindest person and most enthusiastic cheerleader. I simply adore her!" - Tyler Wladis (Fairly Odd Parents: Fairly Odder)
“I have truly learned so much from Katie. When I am in class it is always a safe space to learn, be creative, and be yourself. I would not be where I am today without Katie’s help” -Lily Brooks O’Briant- (Life by Ella, The Big Show Show)
"Miss Katie has helped me become a better actress over the years in so many ways. When I came to Katie, I was a newbie. I overacted everything and didn’t have a clue how to do anything naturally. Katie was so patient and helped me through every step but she didn’t stop there. Most acting coaches just give you the coaching on the one particular scene but, Miss Katie gives you long term advice on you career. I take her advice and use it for everything because it doesn’t apply to just one thing. Finally, she is a role model. She makes time for everything even when her schedule is packed extremely tight. For example- I had a huge audition coming up and Miss Katie was so busy she barely had a 30 minute break. She squeezed me in on a busy day and after the coaching she watched my tape and picked which one was better or gave me extra coaching. Not to mention she has 2 children! She cares for her students as if they were her own children and it’s one of my favorite thing about her. Thank you for everything Miss Katie!" - Sami Bray- (Blacklist, 1984-Broadway)
"I've been working with Katie in private coaching since 2018 and have been in her summer intensive. I always have such a great time working with Katie and I believe the consistency has helped me grow as an actor. With Katie's help I just recently booked a feature film." -Jacob Moran (The Black Phone)
"Katie has really helped me to find more confidence as a performer. She has encouraged me to improve my skills by working with me on a lot of different characters and storylines. She makes the process fun and rewarding". - Devin Fabry (Trainwreck)
"Katie has always been such an incredible teacher and so much fun to work with. Throughout classes and private sessions, there’s never a dull moment. We’re working, or laughing while asking how each other’s days have been or while breaking down a scene to understand it better.
I have come leaps and bounds in my acting thanks to her. We all love you, Katie!" - Willow Wren (Actress/ Author of The Dauntless Chronicles)
"Katie has not only helped me as an actor but as an individual as well. Through the years of working with her I have grown so much. Katie is such an encouraging and dedicated person, whether I am in her classes or lessons my day is immediately better, that is just the person she is, such a light in this world. I am so thankful to work with her, and look forward to continue working on my craft and confidence together!" -Amanda Sweeney
“Katie’s classes truly help me grow into the best actor I can be. Her feedback is always thoughtful, helpful and honest. Her constant smile and positive energy make it so easy to feel comfortable to play around with each scene or activity we do. It is so obvious how much she cares for her students and cares about our success. In times when we are doing more serious emotional work she is always so gentle in how she speaks, teaches and molds our performance. I could not recommend Katie enough to actors of all ages. I can’t thank her enough for all she has done to help me. After my 1st workshop with her I booked my first supporting role in an independent feature film. I continue to take classes with her and I continue to love every second. “- Justin Cullinan
