Katia is a graduate of Bridgewater State University where she studied communication with a concentration in theatre arts. While at BSU, she became passionate about education through entertainment and storytelling. After touring with a children’s theatre troupe, Katia came home to Massachusetts to direct, choreograph, and perform with several non-profit theatre organizations.
After joining Collective Next in 2011, Katia supported the organization holistically as Office Manager and Executive Assistant to the CEO. After 11 years of working in operations and exploring opportunities within the organization, Katia began directing and managing voice actors for various CN projects. Her role has since blossomed and she formally began working as Producer for CN in 2022. She continues to draw on her background in telling stories and managing productions of all shapes and sizes for her clients and colleagues.
When not working, Katia’s creative outlet is “making” – whether knitting, sewing, or throwing clay on a wheel. Though she is momentarily “retired” from theatre, she eagerly awaits the day her daughter is old enough to perform with her.
