           When I came to Katherine for monologue coaching, time was short and stakes were high.  As soon as I met her, I could see her passion for teaching and acting was grounded in a strong belief in the students' abilities.
               She is a fantastic listener, and really grasps onto the arc of the monologue - helping me find the essence of the character while at the same time creating each moment on stage. With her encouragement and supportive approach to teaching, Katherine led me into each monologue with exercises and coaching which suited my acting style perfectly.

             I am so thankful for the time I spent with her!
