Katherine grew up in Maine and California riding horses and downhill ski racing. She studied dance and writing at Sarah Lawrence College, graduating in 1992. After various devastating blows to her health (long-term exposure to new construction materials and a leaking natural gas heater, plus various pesticide exposures), she began videotaping her struggle to survive. Her illness, now chronic, progressed due to being repeatedly misdiagnosed and improperly treated with drugs.

Katherine moved seventeen times before she found a safe place to live. Survival is still an ongoing struggle, but she researches, writes, and continues to perform as much as possible, depending on her health. She currently writes and helps produce educational brochures on environmental health, and hosts her own weekly radio show.

Over the past sixteen years, collaborations and performances featuring Katherine as an improvisational dancer have been presented in New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut. She has worked with artists and musical acts of all kinds at parks, streams, nightclubs, theatres, galleries and art centers (such as the Limelight, CBGBs, the John Houseman Theatre, Dance Theatre Workshop, the Greenwich Arts Council, the Canal Gallery, etcetera).
