Kathy has loved theater from the time she began cueing her mother by listening to the lines being read before she could even read. Her own first roles were in high school, and she went on to major in Speech and Theater at Seattle Community College and Western Washington State College. After moving to Baton Rouge she auditioned for Baton Rouge Little Theater, now Theatre Baton Rouge, appearing in such shows as Play It Again, Sam and Absence Of A Cello. She also worked backstage on lights, sound and props, finding it just as rewarding as being onstage. She acted in numerous productions at Baker Little Theater, and directed two shows there, Love, Sex and The IRS and Crimes Of The Heart and was awarded Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Deathtrap and Dearly Departed. At Ascension Community Theater she again did tech work, and received Best Actress for her role in Arsenic And Old Lace. She appeared in RMTC's 12 Angry Men, and is now looking forward to supporting the Red Magnolia Theater Company in any way she can.
