Katie was born and raised in Pickering, ON and has always had a keen interest in current affairs and breaking news.

She received an honours degree in journalism from Carleton University, where she also minored in law. It was also during this time she developed an interest in the Deaf Culture and has become fluent in American Sign Language.

One of Katie’s greatest passions is travelling. Her favourite stops include Dublin, London, Los Angeles and New York City.
