Katie is a reporter/multimedia journalist/anchor 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.
