Kathryn was born and raised in Garfield, New Jersey, a town known for paper mills and Polish pierogi. In 1992, when she was a sophomore at Paramus Catholic all-girls high school, her family won the New Jersey lottery on a Pick 6 ticket, an event that changed their lives forever. This unique experience is the basis of her upcoming Memoir and Television Pilot, both titled THE LOTTERY CURSE to be complete in 2021. 

Kathryn attended Rutgers College, where she received a BA in Art History and English while working at galleries in SoHo, eventually moving to NYC where she continued at top galleries and museums, writing numerous press releases and Art-related content. She went on to graduate from Parsons in Fashion Studies and worked in the Costume Department for commercials, live productions, and films including Plague Town (2008) and Lifelines (2008), before earning an MA in Art History at Queens College. Her passion for Art and Design led her to live in Rome and Paris, where she immersed herself in language, culture, and daily pizza and wine. Her international experiences continued when she was invited to Dufftown, Scotland to write an essay for the 2009 Glenfiddich Artist in Residence (AiR) catalogue and remained on as a consultant to the programme. 

Her articles on Contemporary Art have been published in Irreversible magazine, Paris-based L’Orpheus (online), amongst others; her research into unconventional topics in Art was presented at the Islip Art Museum and selected by the Costume Society of America for their 2011 Symposium: Dress Scholarship in the Twenty-First Century.

Kathryn lives and works in the New York City area.
