To speak further of her education, Katherine also obtained a Certification in Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
Katherine became involved in the field of journalism even before she obtained her degree, as she did an internship as a part of People Magazine in London, England, which led her to earn enough knowledge and experience as a journalist. So, right after graduation, she started pursuing her professional career, as she was hired at KLFY-TV 10, serving in the positions of a reporter and anchor. After a year, she became a part of KVBC-TV not only as an anchor but also as a weathercaster, which marked the establishment of her net worth.

In 2009, Katherine joined KHOU-TV (Channel 11), which added a considerable amount to her net worth and increased her popularity in that field. During the next five years there, she distinguished herself as a professional and ambitious journalist, covering various stories related to lifestyle and entertainment. In October of 2014, Katherine got an offer to work for the ABC13 Network in the position of a traffic anchor, which she obviously accepted, increasing further her wealth.
Thanks to her accomplishments, she was named a 40 Under 40 Honoree by the Houston Business Journal. Moreover, she was also nominated for a Lone Star Emmy award, after which she won the Louisiana Associated Press Reporter of the Year (Division B) Award.

Social profile links
|1||That's what acting is about, for me at least, tackling different personas and characters.|
|2||Most actors try to do as many different things as possible. I like the encouragement I get from doing new things. I like to feel scared or challenged in the hope that I can pull it off. That little bit of fear creates an energy that I can channel into the performance. And you have to keep tapping new parts of yourself, keep working or you never improve. The only way to improve is to set yourself harder goals.|
|3||I don't remember sitting down and saying, 'This is why I want to be--an actress.' I just knew. It was never a conscious decision or a revelation.|
