Kat graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in May of 2020 with a B.S. in Communication Studies and Minor in Health Communication. She grew up in Atlanta, but found her home in Austin during school. After interning for the Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta, Kat added a Health Communication Minor as she knew she wanted to stay somehow connected to the healthcare industry. In the spring of her junior year, Kat studied abroad through Semester at Sea, taking a full semester course load while on a ship traveling to twelve different countries. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and walking by the river.
