Katherine is an artist, educator, and scholar currently based in Madison, WI. Her work—whether performance, teaching, or research—is driven by a relentless curiosity. From children playing make-believe to virtuosic theatre performance, humans play pretend. Why? How do we learn real things through pretend? How does make-believe shape reality?

Through research, arts practice, and education, Katherine is dedicated to improving meaningful arts access for all!
