Katie grew up in a small southwestern Ontario town and graduated from Carleton University's Bachelor of Journalism program in 2016. She secured her first full-time journalism job at a newspaper in rural New Brunswick where she quickly fell in love with Atlantic Canada. In addition to being a reporter for NEWS 95.7 and HalifaxToday.ca, Katie is the producer of The Rick Howe Show. When not at the station, she can be found exploring the great outdoors with her camera close by.
