ARE YOU COMING FOR THE RIDE?
Katie has trudged her way through this journey, figuring things out along the way. Many mistakes, some victories, and now with several years under her belt, she's earned a great understanding of how to navigate this very particular part of the world-scape. The performer world, especially the magic world, is so vast and yet tiny at the same time. She values the community immensely and wants nothing more than to lend what she's learned to others. Get on board! Her hand is extended to you.
