Katie is a reporter/multimedia journalist who joined the WTVM news team in January 2019. She graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in May of 2017 with a double major in Broadcast & Electronic Journalism and Political Science.

While at UNC, she was a member of UNC’s award-winning student news broadcast, covering everything from the 2016 presidential election to disabled veterans and their service animals. Katie was selected by the UNC journalism school to travel to Hallstatt, Austria to cover a story inside a salt mine in the Austrian Alps. She was an executive board member for her sorority, Pi Beta Phi, for two years, and she also interned at Spectrum News in Raleigh, N.C.

Always a lover of travel and adventure, Katie moved to Prague, Czech Republic after graduation, where she worked as a social media and marketing specialist. After a year of living in the Czech Republic, her love of journalism and storytelling brought her back to the U.S.

Katie is originally from Charlotte, N.C., and is new to the Columbus area. Feel free to reach out with story ideas or with suggestions of things around Columbus.
