Current, perceptive, hip, Kathryn engages her viewers daily and has also appeared nationally on CNBC, The Weather Channel, and other NBC affiliates across the country. Internationally, she appeared on BBC Radio during the Boston Bombings.

Kathryn came to NBC 10 Boston and necn in April of 2013 from WPRI in Providence, Rhode Island. Her first full week on TV was during the Boston Bombings.

She snapped into action, reporting the vital information that viewers needed to know.

Locally, Kathryn presents the news and issues the viewing public cares about.  She's the lead reporter on emerging pivotal topics - from the Boston Bombings to the Aaron Hernandez investigation to the critical issues that affect local cities and towns.
Personal knowledge of New England, its mood, its playmakers, its economy and dynamics enable Kat to not only get the story, but to deliver the story with rigorous objectivity, engendering the trust of her audience.  
She received a degree from Northeastern University in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science.
Besides a strong presence on camera, activities such as school reading events, walk-a-thons, career awareness days and scholarship judging all highlight Kat's genuine sense of community.
