Katie founded the Chicago-based nonprofit organization Artists Breaking Limits & Expectations (A.B.L.E.) with the aim of creating opportunities for individuals with cognitive and developmental differences the opportunity to find the same confidence, friendships, and joy she has found through the arts. Through her work as a teaching artist, she has produced and directed 12 stage productions and 2 feature films, and also authored adaptations of 6 plays from the classical canon. Katie holds an MA with Distinction in Applied Theatre from The Royal Central School for Speech and Drama. Her dissertation, "Side By Side", focused on developing creative arts programming for individuals with a dual diagnosis of Down syndrome and dementia.
In addition to her artistic life, Katie is also a fully certified STOTT® Pilates and GYROTONIC® Instructor with over a decade of experience training clients of all ages and abilities to find healing and strength through movement. She loves traveling, photography and (vegan) dark chocolate. She and her husband, Lawrence, are also passionate about animal rescue, and frequently serve as foster parents for dogs and cats.
